Robert back again with another national holiday celebration. We’re setting our sights on the cinema of Ireland in honor of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17. Ireland is responsible for a lot of films you might not even realize, including a long string of popular animated films in the 80s and 90s (including The Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven, and The Pebble and the Penguin). It’s also a popular...
Robert back again for another edition of Foreign Chops. This has to be one of the biggest turn outs for Foreign Chops yet. France drew a lot of submissions, but, unsurprisingly, Blue is the Warmest Colour was the most popular title. Check out all the great film writing and hang in there for another Foreign Chops subject coming real soon.

Robert back again to announce a new edition of Foreign Chops. This month, we’re asking for your writing on French films. Reviews, interviews, retrospectives, articles–so long as the subject is films from France, we want to see it.
The history of French cinema is largely the history of film itself. From the invention of the commercial film projector to the crossover success of modern French films like The Artist,...
Robert back again with the results of Foreign Chops #19. I asked for your picks for the best non-English films released since 2000 and you delivered.

I have to give a special shout out to YAM Magazine. They put...
Happy Waitangi Day, everyone. We’re celebrating the cinematic output of New Zealand today. We’ve managed to cover most of Peter Jackson’s films (sorry, King Kong and The Lovely Bones, fans) and even a few films he had nothing to do with. Relax and read some great New Zealand film content today.

In order to open up an even wider discussion about films from all around the world, we’re going to begin celebrating holidays of national and international importance at The LAMB. These are going to be far less formal than Foreign Chops and will hopefully continue as annual events.
Our first subject is going to be Australia. Australia Day, the national holiday of Australia, is celebrated each year on January 26. It marks the...
