Lamb ★★

An intriguing premise is painfully underused in this dull affair. It is a movie at odds with itself, there is a repeated visual that is inherently hilarious and cute, but the film refuses to coalesce with this. It wants to be edgy and dark, and far more serious than this element.

This could work well if the aesthetic was in tune with the tone, if our central lamb were more Cronenbergian and less Stuart Little. A serious drama where the titular lamb looks like it's out of a cheap fabric softener advert doesn't really land. All the complications seem obvious and perfunctory; though, the ending is at least hilariously stupid.

Be darker, be cohesively silly or embrace the surreal humour. Just don't be what this is.
