Critic Reviews for Mouth to Mouth

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

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.

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

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

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.

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

The whole is never quite convincing.

Audience Reviews for Mouth to Mouth

CAST: Ellen Page, Natasha Wightman, Eric Thal, Jim Sturges, August Diehl, Beatrice Brown, Jefferson Guzman, Armin Dillenberger, Marilyn Burns, Fabian, Joaquim Horta

DIRECTED BY: Alison Murray

SUMMARY: While hitchhiking in Europe, disaffected teen Sherry (Ellen Page) falls in with an underground cult-like group of former prostitutes and drug addicts. Their charismatic leader (Eric Thal) wants to change the world, but Sherry soon realizes that change comes at a steep price.

MY THOUGHTS: " I think the most appealing thing about this movie is that its based on true events from the directors real life. Ellen Page plays Sherry, who finds herself attracted to a group of misfits who travel under the name of SPARK. At first sight they seem like a group of street kids who are out to help one another stay off drugs and not sale themselves for money. But further on in the movie you will think differently of their heroin Harry. These kids who start off in just this group turns quickly into a somewhat cult. It's not a great movie, but its a very interesting one, especially knowing these events took place. So give it a chance.. You may find it as interesting as I did if nothing else. Not Ellen's best work, but she was great in it like everything else she does."


Super Reviewer

Bit of a strange one. Not entirely sure I liked it that much, but interesting idea. Most of the characters are pretty unlikeable, and the whole thing is quite ugly to look at. Even Ellen Page looks freaky. But it apparently is semi-autobiographical which gives it a bit more credibility. Definitely not on the list to rewatch in a hurry, but worth a look.

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 cast a long time to realize the leader is preying on their vulnerabilities. Certainly captures the anarchist vibe.
