A misfired attempt
19 March 2011 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a boy with much imagination, who is rejected by his brothers and peers. After he grows up, he spends time mentoring a psychiatric patient in a psychiatric hospital.

"The Black Sheep" has a plot twist which is supposed to be powerful. However, this twist has been done before successfully by at least two popular Hollywood films, so "The Black Sheep" ends up looking like a cheap copy. Though this film has dropped some hints about the twist ending, these hints are too subtle, which serve to confuse rather than to hint and engage. Nothing much happens in the film, so I found it rather plain and boring. By the time that the twist kciked in, it was already too late for me to change my mind about the film.
