Ei8ht: An OCD Story

41208C37-C208-4058-BC49-0D661DA03E5D I am about to introduce you one of the recent movies that I have watched. In fact, I watched it a bit late since this australian movie is from 2016. It’s about a woman with severe OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and technically speaking, it is quite a low budget movie. The entire movie takes place at this unfortunate woman’s home. However, it is a quite strong movie, that introduces you how difficult could be the life of someone suffering from this condition. No matter how hard it is to watch, I’m sure you will hit a 5-star for this movie. Never mind about its IMDB point, of course!

A woman suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) struggles with her morning routine of trying to get to work on time.

🇪🇸 Estoy a punto de presentaros una de las pelis recientes que he visto. De hecho, la he visto un poco tarde, como esta peli australiana es de 2016. Se trata de una mujer con severo OCD y técnicamente es bastante de presupuesto bajo. La entera película tiene lugar en la casa de esta mujer desafortunada. Sin embargo es muy fuerte, os introduce lo difícil la vida de alguien que padece esta condición. Por más que difícil es ver la peli, seguro vais a dar 5 estrellas. Ni siquiera mires su punto en IMDB.

Mother! Ammmmazing!

Spoiler safe zone!
Those imdb points! I’m still not sure how much I should trust them, really. For the horror/thriller movie genre, tho, I have a scale. I don’t expect them to hit the 7’s or 8’s. Some movie slightly over 5,5 deserves a chance in my opinion. However for Mother!, I had a spare place. I had heard of it so much so that I wouldn’t ever care about the Imdb point.
You know, what?! I did just that. And I wasn’t wrong at all. I could proudly say it was my all time favorite or something close to that. First it took me a while to figure out exactly what was going on. Then it was even more interesting to watch. It didn’t even lose anything from its magic. I must say it deserves a second time watching. It might even be necessary. That much of mysteriousness I’m speaking about… so you get the picture.
To speak about the actings, both Javier Bardem and Jennifer Lawrence are amazing (with multiple m’s). Certainly there more than the two. You’ll see quite a bunch of celebrities in this movie, including Michelle Pfeiffer. I’m just going to put the trailer below but I’m not sure if it gives you enough of an impression of how good this movie is.
Meanwhile, I’ve just discovered that the imdb point of Mother! is currently 6,7. Although it’s quite a good point in its genre, honestly I found it quite low. I guess there are some people out there who didn’t quite understand the movie. Or better yet, don’t event trust those points 😉
