Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is grim, bleak material that at times is monotonous, but its woe feels authentic."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
""Yelling" is a prosaic look at a hard life. Like Sweetness, the movie finds its way by instinct."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"The film avoids most of its genre's pratfalls, though it also shows little interest in transcending them."
‑ Michael Nordine, Slant Magazine
"Not much happens in story terms, but the film swirls with emotions that make it by turns grim and amusing, heavy and light, obvious and vague."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Little more than a rsum film for all involved, it certainly feels more Park City than Bushwick."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"Even though 'Yelling to the Sky' tumbles, Victoria Mahoney shows great promise as a director."
‑ Clay Cane,
"Mahoney barely explains her characters' circumstances, which makes the movie obliquely intriguing. But whenever the story comes into focus, it's revealed as fairly conventional."
‑ Mark Jenkins, NPR
"Yelling to the Sky drips with a strange but sometimes moving nostalgia for environs its characters clearly want to escape."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Though the film and its director undoubtedly have a great deal of heart and passion, too many scenes feel like actors' workshop exercises."
‑ Lee Marshall, Screen International
