      Kaori Shoji Japan Subculture Research Center With its slow burning violence and small town melodrama, The Scythian Lamb is mindful in many ways of Fargo (the TV series) but without the broad streak of snarkiness and splashy bloodletting. Jan 10, 2019 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Making a film like this successfully is a lot harder than most people think, for all that it appears simplistic on the surface. For those who enjoy such work, The Scythian is a rare treat. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 18, 2018 Full Review Mark Schilling Japan Times It squarely addresses the consequences of the ultimate crime for both the perpetrators and the society in which they live. For the paroled six rehabilitation is a possibility, but so is a reversion to violence. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 7, 2018 Full Review Jason Bechervaise Screen International Bonkers - but all the better for it. Oct 16, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member For those who love movies with psychological - drama genres i really recommend this movie. But if you're looking for lighter and fast storyline movies, stay away from this one. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
