What is the main focus of your site?
Posting reviews of current releases and classics, posting editorials on the state of modern cinema and occasionally digressing into articles about television, music and books.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
To contribute to the general discussion of film both as art and entertainment in a way which is informed enough for the serious cinephiles but accessible enough that anyone can read it.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
Definitely an interactive community. I’d much rather have a dialogue with people who disagree with me than to lecture people who don’t really care either way.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
Nearly three and a half years. I update it at least twice a week, though during the awards season and summer I tend to write more to try to keep up with the deluge of releases.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more):
There Will Be Blood, A Matter of Life and Death, Die Hard
How did you hear about the LAMB?
I remember Adam Batty of Hope Lies at 24 Frames A Second mentioning it in conversation a while ago and finally decided to check it out after seeing it referenced on Twitter.

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above. 
What was the film that really made you want to write about films?

Sidney Lumet’s Network. It was the first classic film I ever watched which I really engaged with on an intellectual level and which I felt that I just had to write about and discuss with people. From then onwards I’ve been hooked.
