MOVIE REVIEW: Mother!

dir. Darren Aronofsky reviewed by Dakota Drobnicki I’m not really huge on Darren Aronofsky’s work; I did love me some Black Swan back when that came out, but Requiem For A Dream for example, I understand why people love it but it never quite resonated with me personally.

KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD
