Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Murray becomes less and less sure of where things are heading or what it is she is trying to get at, such that the last few reels feel perfunctory and unengaged."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Alison Murray's chaotic, semiautobiographical account of a teenage girl's misadventures in a traveling cult, occupies its own stylistic niche: the movie as acid flashback."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A gritty, original, and visceral film about a cult's romantic hold on a vulnerable girl..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"Despite its contemporary stylistic flourishes (including several disparate dance sequences choreographed by director Alison Murray, previously a music video helmer), Mouth to Mouth is pretty ordinary."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"A clear-eyed look at the pleasures and price of abandoning conventional mores for experimental lifestyles."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Suffers from disjointed storytelling and myriad other problems, including a bizarre reliance on modern dance sequences to interrupt the action."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Like the homeless kids at its center, Alison Murray's feature debut is passionate, angry and suffering from a serious lack of discipline."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The film's subject matter is far from enjoyable, and, in the absence of anything fresh in its perspective, it's hard to imagine who would want to endure it."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"For all the flaws, its grit and honesty have genuine strength."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Wightman's gradual change from liberated mom to moonie is one of the scariest performances of the year."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Though Mouth to Mouth is a grim movie, it's far from a hopeless one."
‑ Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly
"The whole is never quite convincing."
‑ , New York Magazine/Vulture
"Murray, making her feature debut as a writer and director, left home when she was 15, and her firsthand experience with hard truths gives the movie a raw authority."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Daily News
"so threadbare in offering character motivations and background that it hobbles the performances"
‑ Jay Antani,
"Worth seeing even if only for Ellen Page's stunning performance."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
