Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 02/15/2010
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."
Film Comment - 03/01/2010
"The specter of PSYCHO haunts Bong's film....Bong takes the idea of the primacy of perception over reality to its ultimate extreme."
Los Angeles Times - 03/12/2010
"[E]nthralling, unpredictable, yet highly accessible....It turns into a dazzlingly multifaceted epic of stunning surprise."
New York Times - 03/12/2010
"[With] a kinked narrative and a monumental, ferocious performance by Kim Hye-ja as the title character."
Wall Street Journal - 03/12/2010
"An absolutely phenomenal film....This is filmmaking of a high order."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/26/2010
"Another must-see marvel of horror, comedy and impeccable filmmaking by the Korean director Bong Joon-ho..." -- Grade: A
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/24/2010
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."
Premiere - 07/19/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's clever and realistic....Hye-ja Kim has a brilliant, quiet resolve..."
Empire - 09/01/2010
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..."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2010
"[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."
Uncut - 10/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Riveting....This matches its visceral drive with Hitchcockian ellipses and enigmas."
Total Film - 11/01/2010
"[Bong Joon-ho] builds a hypnotically strange, artful atmosphere while keeping a deft handle on the maternal melodrama."

Product Description:

After the international success of THE HOST, director Bong-joon Ho turns his talent to this film that played at Cannes in 2009. In MOTHER, a woman is forced to investigate a murder after her son is wrongfully accused of the crime.
