"You won't forget it. You can't forget it."

— Adam Graham, Detroit News

"A fame-to-flameout movie that leaves scorch marks on the brain."

— Peter Howell, Toronto Star

"Her Smell is a journey through hell and back that feels more gratifying for being difficult."

— Scott Tobias, NPR

"It’s truly one of the most noxious movies ever made, which might help to explain why it’s also Perry’s best."

— David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"Perry’s kinetic style and Moss’ explosive performance transform it into something that feels more authentic than actual history."

— Dan Caffrey, Consequence of Sound

"New material from the challenging auteur, one that reflects a deeper sense of maturity, displayed mainly in the idea of the possibility of redemption."

— Alonso Duralde, TheWrap

"Moss strips away every shred of her charm to reveal her charisma in its rawest state, implicating Perry and the audience in a voyeurism that can feel almost holy."

— A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"Moss is endlessly fascinating, basking in the liberating comfort of surrendered glamour. She inhabits every cranny and crevice of the character's despairing, terrified, burnt-out, blasted self."

— Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"Her Smell goes beyond the expected trappings of your usual rock drama and successfully manages to capture the convulsive core of musical artistry while suggesting, in a major departure for the usually cynical Alex Ross Perry, that it’s possible for the individual to break free of its corrosive bonds."

— Kyle Pletcher, The Film Stage
