    The Other Lamb

    I'm not 100% sure how much all of this works, but what a gorgeous ride.

    It definitely falls into "horror-adjacent" -- there are a few bloody parts (mostly involving animals, but even there, nothing too upsetting) but it's more just a slow-burn of weirdness. There is a lot of blurring of reality and it's hard to know what's real and what's not.

    It was filmed in Ireland but everyone has a stereotypical U.S./North American accent. There are some indications that…

Crispin Glover as Uncle Julian is…

    I feel really conflicted about this one.

    I like that Dina (especially!) and Scott are just themselves and there's no one mocking them or anything else. But the framing (and the music) does try to make it into some kind of twee indie drama, which is weird.

    It's an interesting story, but I can't help wonder why it's being told. Don't get me wrong -- I think it deserves to be told. But there's the question of "why" it's being…
