Slant Magazine

An anti-cult cautionary tale directed at impressionable kids in jeopardy of joining shirtless hunks on European excursions marked by chanting, eating out of dumpsters, and psychological warfare.

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.

so threadbare in offering character motivations and background that it hobbles the performances

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.

An uneven, occasionally vivid, ultimately unsatisfactory treatment of themes that should've packed more punch.

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

Boxoffice Magazine

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.

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

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.

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

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

Page has the looks and the internal landscape to provide an awkward plot with the emotional hook to hang on to. This supernova in the making can carry a movie.

About willfully homeless street youth and their programmed need for community and belonging, but the film's unintentional ramifications dig deeper.

The cult becomes the most important character in this otherwise well-made Canadian film about a charismatic group leader and his followers. Catch star Ellen Page so you can say you knew her when.

Wightman's gradual change from liberated mom to moonie is one of the scariest performances of the year.

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.
