Critic Reviews for Babyteeth
Does it all work? Not quite, but you can't fault a film for its ambition, least of all one that does manage to bring it all together for a deeply moving home stretch.
Murphy has marked herself as one to watch for sprightly direction and storytelling that doesn't feel the need to spell out every plot progression. And Scanlen has confirmed her status as one of the most promising young actors on either side of the world.
Though not without its niggles, this is a notable first feature from Murphy, who exudes a supreme confidence in her deployment of crisp visuals and the lightly bifurcated manner in which she unfurls this eccentric yarn.
It keeps you on your toes from the moment it starts...
A wickedly perverse and, in time, intensely moving variation on familiar coming-of-age themes that marks an arresting feature debut for both director Shannon Murphy and screenwriter Rita Kalnejais.
