Did you just watch Tau and turned off Netflix with a lot of questions about what Tau really was, What Alex’s secret project was really about, why he chose Julia or even what is the meaning of the final scene in the movie?

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?
