    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.

    Appalling in the way that it is insanely well acted by ellen page. Much much much much much better than the curious case if Benjamin button which I watched in the same night. Good effects, horribly copied Forrest gump, and really boring but mouth to mouth is great all around.

    When Harry(Eric Thal) takes away Sherry's innocence, she has half of her feminine wiles; a half-shaved head, but the older man is lured into temptation nevertheless by her nubile mystique. In cases of sexual misconduct, a man will blame the woman for turning him on. Sherry's partly-bald pate neutralizes this wrongful claim because sex is often more about power than desire. It When Harry(Eric Thal) takes away Sherry's innocence, she has half of her feminine wiles; a half-shaved head, but the older man is lured into temptation nevertheless by her nubile mystique. In cases of sexual misconduct, a man will blame the woman for turning him on. Sherry's partly-bald pate neutralizes this wrongful claim because sex is often more about power than desire. It doesn't matter if Sherry(Ellen Page) has beautiful hair or not. Harry wants to own her. "Mouth to Mouth" is more avant-garde(modern dance replaces dialogue in some instances) than your average run-of-the-mill indie. "Mouth to Mouth" gets interesting when it dawns on the viewer that this neo-collective of free-spirits is actually a cult. Expand

    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.
