Mother! yucker.
All this hyped deep, deep thinking supposedly in doorknob Aranofsky's latest cheap trick, Mother!
What does it mean? Who can take it all in? Genius, sheer genius! Author, author!
Author, schmother.
Read this synopsis;

“Mother!” is about Mother Earth (Ms. Lawrence) and God (Mr. Bardem), whose poetic hit has the weight of the Old Testament: hence all the visitors clamoring for a piece of Him, as his character is called. The house represents our planet [didn't you just say nitwit Lawrence did, numbnuts?]. (Walking the wooden floorboards in bare feet is what finally got the part to click, Ms. Lawrence said.) The movie is about climate change, and humanity’s role in environmental destruction.
The action takes place on the biblical sixth day (the film’s original title was “Day Six,” she said) and follows that timeline. “You have the creation of people, you have the creation of religion itself, people reading the same writing and arguing over its meaning, false idols,” Ms. Lawrence said. She got the religious references immediately. “I was a Bible nerd — Bible study every Sunday,” she said, adding an expletive.

Mr. Aronofsky, an environmentalist who’s active with the Sierra Club, pitched her the concept, which she liked, yet she was still taken aback by the full vision in the script, which wreaks unyielding, gruesome havoc on her character. “When I first read it,” she said, “I didn’t even want it in my house. I thought it was evil, almost.”


CAUTION! Geniuses at work!
More detail on the hackneyed slop's plodding plot and idiocy inspired allegory here.

An average of F?
That would mean nothing higher.

--An average of F?

I'm guessing you were either cluelessly happy and utterly disillusioned by your parents' reaction or profoundly depressed and pleasantly surprised whenever you had to deliver your report cards back in Tom Brown's school days.

Juan Williams is insipid.

Worse, Williams practices journalism like Howard Zinn practices history -- So selective in facts it is fiction.
