  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 5 -- "Korean writer/director Bong Joon-ho affirms his place among the art cinema masters with his latest endeavor, MOTHER....This film will rank among the best of the year."
    Box Office

    "The specter of PSYCHO haunts Bong's film....Bong takes the idea of the primacy of perception over reality to its ultimate extreme."
    Film Comment

    "[E]nthralling, unpredictable, yet highly accessible....It turns into a dazzlingly multifaceted epic of stunning surprise."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[With] a kinked narrative and a monumental, ferocious performance by Kim Hye-ja as the title character."
    New York Times

    "An absolutely phenomenal film....This is filmmaking of a high order."
    Wall Street Journal

    "Another must-see marvel of horror, comedy and impeccable filmmaking by the Korean director Bong Joon-ho..." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film is labyrinthine and deceptive, and not in a way we anticipate. It becomes a pleasure for the mind."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's clever and realistic....Hye-ja Kim has a brilliant, quiet resolve..."

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Like Bong's previous films, it has an aspect of straight-faced, absurd humour, but plays a chillingly serious game..."

    "[T]he film is slippery, in a good way....A film that moves with non-judgmental assurance through various modes, from gripping thriller to frisky social satire and even full-on melodrama."
