Is “Mother!” the most confusing movie of 2017 or merely the most provocative? @mothermovie starts as a home invasion-psychological thriller focused on a couple, played by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. It ends in flaming nightmare surrealism. And throughout, it’s stuffed with themes that divided, and mystified, critics. In the past, @darrenaronofsky has conjured up all manner of misbehavior and grotesqueries in “Requiem for a Dream” and “Black Swan.” This one tops them easily. “When I first read it,” Jennifer said of the script, “I didn’t even want it in my house. I thought it was evil, almost.” The demands of her role were substantial: in 2 hours, she’s in close-up for 66 minutes. Even the sounds of the ravaged house are her voice, digitally manipulated. While filming one particularly disturbing scene, she hyperventilated, tore her diaphragm and had to be put on oxygen. The film’s allegory seems to have eluded many viewers, and @darrenaronofsky and #JenniferLawrence disagree about how much to reveal. “My advice is to understand the allegory,” she said. We followed her lead, but we won’t spoil it here. Visit the link in our profile to read more. @_markian_ photographed Jennifer Lawrence, #JavierBardem and #DarrenAronofsky.

A young boy watched as food was distributed earlier today in the Balukhali refugee camp in southern #Bangladesh. After a Rohingya militant group attacked police outposts last month, Myanmar’s military, along with vigilante groups, launched a crackdown in the western state of Rakhine. What resulted: a refugee crisis that has sent more than 400,000 #Rohingya fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh, where our journalist @bcsolomon is on the ground. “The basic systems like food distribution and sanitation have been totally overwhelmed here,” he writes. “It rains nearly all day. The mood is desperate.” Watch our #InstagramStory to see what he witnessed earlier today.
