The Movie of the Month for January 2023 is…

Happy New Year from the LAMB! To celebrate the ceremonial flipping of the calendar, let’s announce the latest Movie of the Month! As usual a bunch of LAMB members submitted all sorts of movies to be voted upon, one of them has won and that lucky film will get a Lambcast episode dedicated to it. We had that rarest of wonders this month with a film receiving zero votes – not even Mark Hofmeyer wanted to vote for his own film – but fortunately that wasn’t the case across the board as some of you voted and there is an outright, runaway winner. So for I think the first time the voted-for Movie of the Month was directed by the Coen Brothers (if this is incorrect, there is no need to correct me) as for January we’ll be discussing their debut… Blood Simple!

Congratulations go to Sean from The 1001 Movies Podcast (and many other shows) for successfully championing Blood Simple to victory, and as such he gets to host the upcoming Lambcast dedicated to it. Here’s the voting breakdown for the poll:
