Critic Reviews for Lamb

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (10)

  • Partridge portrays David with immaculate timing and meticulous attention to detail. We feel for the character's pain, but never quite trust him.

    Jan 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Partridge has a strong screen presence, but the potential power of his storytelling approach is negated when emotions get mushy in the third act. That's when we figure out that this film doesn't know exactly what it wants to say.

    Jan 14, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Lamb" is empathetic and untrustworthy, haunting but often unpersuasive. In the end it's hard to say what the film's point is. But it lingers in the mind.

    Jan 8, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In the novel, Lamb is a fantasist who uses Tommie as a blank (pure) slate on which to write a new life story. Mr. Partridge never figures out how to complicate his version and its voices, or maybe doesn't want to.

    Jan 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Feeling creeped out is unavoidable, but it's an inquisitive unsettling born of a faith that people are inherently complicated, worthy of love, capable of good and yet all too often mired in well-meaning intentions that hurt more than help.

  • The film shifts from Daniel's to Tommie's point of view in a remarkably subtle fashion, altering the makeup of the story and the ways we're forced to wrestle with it.
