    Scarecrow embraces sprawl of both the narrative and geographical variety with freewheeling abandon.

    Scarecrow’ feels like an existential fairytale squarely rooted in the reality of America’s fraying backroads and small towns. It’s all a little rambling and anarchic, but later scenes in a jail have real bite. And when the sadness behind Lion’s smile is revealed, it’s also genuinely moving.

    it is a well-acted movie and for long stretches we're hoping it will work.

    A flawed, fascinating testament to a time of discovery in Hollywood: of how stories could be told onscreen, of what great actors might find within themselves, of just what in the hell this country had become in the late-'60s crackup.

    Scarecrow is a periodically interesting but ultimately unsatisfying character study of two modern drifters.
