    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 Herald

    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 Globe

    February 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 Times

    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.

    Mother and son gesticulate wildly but remain undefined; Dolan's blandly showy aesthetic matches the vainly hectic action.

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    January 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.

    In Mommy, Dolan has essentially stunted his work, speaking both figuratively and literally.

    James Mottram South China Morning Post

    April 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.

    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 Weekly

    Xavier Dolan's Mommy is an endurance test even by the standards of miserablist drama.

    Robert Horton Seattle Weekly

    December 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 Weekly

    A work of haunting power.
