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.

Stephen Holden
New York 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.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Film Threat

A gritty, original, and visceral film about a cult's romantic hold on a vulnerable girl...

Frank Scheck
Hollywood Reporter

Suffers from disjointed storytelling and myriad other problems, including a bizarre reliance on modern dance sequences to interrupt the action.

Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News

Like the homeless kids at its center, Alison Murray's feature debut is passionate, angry and suffering from a serious lack of discipline.

Andy Klein
Los Angeles CityBeat

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.

Ella Taylor
L.A. Weekly

Though Mouth to Mouth is a grim movie, it's far from a hopeless one.

New York Magazine/Vulture

The whole is never quite convincing.

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.

Early Ellen Page effort which proves a good vehicle for her but works less well as a whole. The aims of the collective she joins are muddled and it takes the… More

Early Ellen Page but not one that you would want to remember her for. A cult movie that doesn't work.
