TODAY’S NEW RELEASE: BEHOLD THE LAMB
BIGSTAR has discovered yet another bizarre yet completely compelling film in “Behold the Lamb.” One of the oddest “dramedy’s” I have witnessed the flick starts out dark and witty and continues in that vain throughout the film.
Starring two unlikely characters who form an even more unlikely bond, she is a prostitute and mother; he is an older, epileptic single parent as well. The religious references are there as well, from the title, to the actual lamb, to cleansing water, yet the meaning of the film has so much more depth than that. It is the tale of redemption of the two people who fight one another and their inner demons as they cross the brilliant Northern Ireland landscape. Their journey takes its biggest and oddest twist when they happen upon a “drug-filled” lamb. Yes, viewers, your read that last line correctly. The strange expedition is filled with humor from dead dogs, to car naps, to toilet sex, to the banter between our two heroes. It has one misadventure after another but my favorite unfortunate event has to be when he (Eddie) misplaces the drug-loaded lamb and is sent out, on his own accord, to a muddy field to find it among a flock of sheep. Viewers, if you are into crazy road trips, than “Behold the Lamb” is TRULY the adventure you have been waiting for!
