You may see the movie "Mother!". I've gotten confused about the symbolism of the Publisher character.
If we consider the writer as God, so his publishers would be the prophets because the prophets had the responsibility of broadcasting the messages of god to the world.
But the cruelty and violence depicted by the character during the wartime in the movie, makes me confused. She even tried to kill the mother of nature, so she is a symbol of someone who tries to kill all the livings and destroy the nature! According to all the religions, prophets were not the cruel ones and they even tried to bring the peace and better ways to live to the people.
So my main questions are these:
- If she stands for prophets why is she a negative character?
- If she is not a prophet, then who is the publisher of god?
- Does the character stand for followers of various religions who are always struggling with each other?
