The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

LAMBMOTM18

2014 may be coming to a close, but right around that corner there’s a whole new year, full of months just waiting to have movies assigned to them. As usual, the first of these will be January, and once again a bunch of movies were vying for the coveted title of Movie of the Month. There were a few films that took an early lead, but right near the end there was a sudden surge for the winner, and that winner is… Southland Tales.

Congratulations go to Elwood Jones of From the Depths of DVD Hell, who in championing the victorious movie gets to host the upcoming Lambcast devoted to it. There’s still an open Wild Card slot on that show (recording date Sunday January 11th, 9am Pacific), so if you want to discuss Richard Kelly’s follow-up to Donnie Darko please leave a message in the comments section.

As always, when that Lambcast is posted, any reviews the rest of the LAMB wishes to write about the film will be posted too. Please send in any submissions – new or old – to jaycluitt(at)hotmail.com by Monday 12th January. That day will also see the next poll go up, so if you would like to champion a film for February’s MOTM, be sure to get in touch as well.

Here are the results of this month’s poll:

    Well at least I made second place which is better than usual. My campaigning must have sone something. I’m very surprised that The Goonies didn’t do better but it goes to show that the popularity of the film isn’t necessarily as important as the campaigning.

    I am Jack’s complete and utter suprise!!
    Still no idea how I beat “The Goonies” of all films as I was sure that would have won it. Thanks to everyone who got behind my campaign to champion it including director Richard Kelly in one of the more suitably surreal moments of this campaign.

    I still vividly remember seeing Southland Tales in theaters, and every viewing since has increased my love for it. Though the other films on the list are great, its good to see one that isn’t as well known taking home the crown. I own more than one copy and periodically lend it out to people, haha. Richard Kelly is magnificently talented, and all of his films are uniquely compelling in their own way, but this one really hit home 100% for me, which is a rarity.
