Lamb ★★½

I almost never think "this movie would be improved a lot by not being a horror" so when I do I sit up and take notice. This movie played as a straight surrealist drama rather than an atmospheric spooooky horror would be, imo, incredible.

Alas, this movie undercuts all its own deeply interesting themes and ideas in the name of producing tension and fear--which it fails at anyway. As it stands, it only really has the complexity and depth for a 30 min short film.

Still, some beautiful shots of animals and Icelandic countryside, Noomi Rapace is great, and it points towards a few interesting vectors, even if it never follows any of them far enough.
