Audiences hate it, critics are divided (but mostly like it) and everyone's sort of scandalized now that it exists ... but what do Grierson & Leitch think of Darren Aronofsky's "mother!"? This week's episode, taped live in Grierson's dining room in Los Angeles, digs into it. It's the movie everyone is talking about, for better or worse.
Also, Grierson praises Ben Stiller's new film "Brad's Status." (Leitch hasn't seen it, thanks to a faulty print.)
Then, in our Reboot segment, we head back to 1994 and the Coen brothers' first big Hollywood movie, "The Hudsucker Proxy."
