Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

mother! (2017)

HIHIM: You won't hurt much longer.
Mother: What hurts me the most is that I wasn't enough.
HIM: It's not your fault. Nothing is ever enough.
I couldn't create if it was. And I have to. That's what I do.
That's... what I am. Now I must try it all again.

I still can't believe this movie happened. I mean that with the utmost admiration. It is a blessing, my ridiculous experience getting to see the premiere at Radio City Music Hall was a blessing - we been blessed! All the exclamation points! I hate that Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky broke up after this movie came out -- I wanted them to make twenty increasingly insane movies together. Although... this one sets an awfully high bar for "insane" so I don't know how you'd leap-frog this beginning. I guess perhaps they got that. Well now that we've all learned a valuable lesson in real time about the relationship between those two I suppose I should do what I came here for -- to wish Javier Bardem a happy 50th birthday. Happy day, Mr. Bardem!
