|What mother can bear to see her son hauled off to jail?|
I do have to give the movie credit for one scene. When they're riding in Lance's car, he gets onto Kyle for putting his feet up on the dash, making Kyle mad. Later, after Kyle dies, Lance looks over to the passenger seat and notices Kyle's dirty footprints on the dash. It's a poignant reminded to cherish our children and choose our battles wisely. Who really cares about footprints on the dashboard when you no longer have your children to ride with you?
|I said, clean your room!|
|A tender moment between mother and mutant daughter.|
Of all these movies, the only one I might recommend is Mother, and that with some caveats. I'm thankful for a mother who loves me, and the real world's greatest dad. I'm glad I don't have a stepfather, and thankful for an adopted child who's a terrific kid. And having a child by genetic splicing never crossed my mind. My family of birth and my family of marriage aren't perfect, but these crazy movies, in a weird sort of way, remind me to appreciate my family!
