Critic Reviews of "Mommy"Peter Rainer Christian Science MonitorFebruary 20, 2015
I suppose the relationship is Oedipal or primal or something or other, but mostly it's just an excuse for Dolan to stage a series of gaudy shout-fests.Rene Rodriguez Miami HeraldFebruary 12, 2015
A story of the combative relationship between a mother and her son filled with delirious swells of effusive love and sudden plummets into madness and hate.Ty Burr Boston GlobeFebruary 05, 2015
Dolan is able to weave dialogue, camerawork, a fluid yet urgent editing style, and a magpie's ear for pop music into a cinematic world that you can almost hold in your hand before it starts spilling over.Moira MacDonald Seattle TimesFebruary 05, 2015
The movie's overlong, underpopulated and often devastating to watch. But it's told with an uncanny realism, and when it's over you feel shaken and a little sick - and realize that you can finally exhale.Richard Brody New YorkerFebruary 02, 2015
Mother and son gesticulate wildly but remain undefined; Dolan's blandly showy aesthetic matches the vainly hectic action.Mick LaSalle San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 30, 2015
Dolan is only 25, and though he doesn't have Orson Welles beat, this has to be one of the best films ever written and directed by a 25-year-old.Peter Labuza The Film StageJune 06, 2016
In Mommy, Dolan has essentially stunted his work, speaking both figuratively and literally.James Mottram South China Morning PostApril 06, 2016
Mommy forces you to give in to its relentless energy. Dolan conducts it with gusto, leaving us with a cathartic reckoning with his own demons.David 'Mad Dog' Bradley Rip It UpJanuary 01, 2016
It's perhaps a never-seen-before technical stunt that's deeply intriguing, seriously cinematic and impossible to discuss without giving it all away.Sherilyn Connelly SF WeeklyDecember 31, 2015
Xavier Dolan's Mommy is an endurance test even by the standards of miserablist drama.Robert Horton Seattle WeeklyDecember 21, 2015
You can see the talent that lies beneath Dolan's aggressive method, and the promise of something great in his future.Kristian M. Lin Fort Worth WeeklyAugust 11, 2015
A work of haunting power.
