Let’s be honest. These days, most of the moviegoers buy the tickets expecting to see Vin Diesel flying through the air catching his amnesic ex-wife. And because of that kind of unrealistic expectations, a lot of people who went to see mother! end up very confused and frustrated, not getting the point of the whole story. And it is easy to understand why.
mother! is a very deep and emotional film with a premise that is definitely not so clear for the average viewer, specially if they see the movie just once. So, in order to find out what is exactly going on in this movie, it is necessary, not only reading between lines, but also paying extra attention to the keys given by Aronofsky and Jennifer Lawrence in several promotional interviews.
So if you left the movie theater with more questions than answers, this is the right post for you. Without further ado, let’s start with the Analysis and Explanation of mother!
1 ^ Is there a post-credit scene in mother! ?
The end of mother! is so ambiguous and confusing, at least the first time you see it, that it is not even weird to find some people staying through the credits waiting for a final clarifying scene giving some light to the convoluted plot … but no. mother! has no post-credits scenes.
2 ^ Why the title of the movie “mother!” is written in lowercase?
This is perhaps the most important clue the director gives about what the fuck is actually going on in the movie. If you see all the credits at the end of the movie, absolutely every single word is in lowercase- the names of the actors, the director, the titles, the characters, including Jennifer Lawrence’s mother. The ONLY exception (not related to Paramore Song, thanks) to is the character of Javier Bardem, who is named as Him, starting in capital letters. Any idea about who is Him?

Directed by Oren Uziel, Shimmer Lake is one of the new additions in Netflix this June, with some degree of success among the viewers thanks to its kind of unusual way to tell the story.
Shimmer Lake relates the series of events that takes place after a bank robbery in a small town in northern USA. The funny thing is that these facts are presented on the screen in a reversed chronological order. The film begins on Friday, the moves to Thursday, then Wednesday and finally we are told what happened on Tuesday, the day of the robbery.
Although all the elements of the film are well within the average standard for a Netflix Original, including performances (except perhaps Stephanie Sigman and Benjamin Walker), the interesting thing about this film and what it is worth analyzing and explaining is the chronological order of the facts. So. let’s do it.

One of the new additions to the Netflix library this May is one of the most controversial pieces of the Indian Cinema. Directed by Sudanshu Saria, Loev is at the same time a road film, a love story and of course, a lgbt flick.
Although the movie’s plot is quite easy to follow, once you reach the end of the film, the usual feeling for the average viewer is confusion.

In this post I will attempt to analize and explain Loev, specially through a emotional dissection of its characters. Of course that will be my personal opinion, if you find another, I will be more than happy to read it on the comments section. Let’s do this.
