    Just... it's just a very strange movie. Takes some real serious issues, touches on some interesting ideas, glances at some beautiful moments. But the entire movie seems to flounder. It's very mixed up, as if the writers weren't sure what kind of story they actually wanted to tell. The result is this meandering movie that has potential that it doesn't ever approach.

    The entire film is
    carried by Ellen Page's fantastic acting. At its best, Mouth to Mouth is just confused, and needs more direction before it approaches a good film. Collapse

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

    Murray's story has the no-holds-barred look and feel of a '70s movie, but her digressions into modern dance are a tad unwelcome.
  3. The upbeat ending can't erase the lingering aura of being trapped in an insane asylum with the Manson family.
