Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!
« Reply #1 on: September 05, 2017, 07:26:43 PM »
A review of the film Mother! (which I haven't yet seen) which says
"British audiences might also spot a number of significant likenesses to the Sarah Kane play Blasted, in which a series of spiralling horrors are visited on a couple in a hotel room in Leeds. Now widely considered an epochal work, Kane’s play was dismissed on its first performance as a “feast of filth” – a description which could equally apply to the later passages of Aronofsky’s film, in which the film’s sense of restraint finally snaps, and all hell (arguably literally) breaks loose."

The review is by Robbie Collin in The Telegraph, 5 Sept 2017.  The link is here
