San Francisco Chronicle
Dosunmu is an up-and-coming director; Mother of George is his second film after the much-lauded "Restless City." He's got the visual part of the job down for sure. Full Review

Mother Of George is rarely boring to look at, but it might still have been better served by a starker, less showy aesthetic. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
This is not a fable of assimilation or alienation, but rather the keenly observed story of two people seeking guidance in painful and complicated circumstances. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
This is one of the most striking entries in the 2013 global wave of black cinema, but also admittedly one that poses hurdles to audiences with conventional expectations. Full Review
Barbara VanDenburgh
Arizona Republic
It’s a powerfully sensual movie, gorgeously lensed colors and textures conveying its characters emotional states while thoughtfully exploring the range of human sexuality through Adenike’s experience. Full Review
