Leo Brady reviews “The Other Lamb” on AMovieGuy.com

There is an argument in circles of cinephiles that a movie can’t be great, simply because it looks good. I am on the team that says if a movie looks gorgeous, it is already halfway there. Cinematography is the art part in cinema. It’s a moving painting when it is done right. An image can lock into our minds like a cemented fence. Obviously this is a case by case basis, but The Other Lamb is gorgeous, possibly one of the best looking films of 2020. It also has a fascinating story, about a young women named Selah (Raffey Cassidy- The Killing of a Sacred Deer), born into a cult of twenty women, being led by one single man, who goes by the name of Shepherd (Michiel Huisman- Game of Thrones). They are divided into wives and children, the wives in red, the children in blue, and as Selah begins to get older, she begins to awake to the madness that she is living in. The Other Lamb is a dreamlike, psychologically twisted film, where the lion will soon be taken over by his flock of lambs.
