I looked back at the history of the MOTM feature and realised that not many films have covered aspects of the non-white experience, so in the spirit of elevating POC voices in cinema I consulted with Lambcast regular Aaron Neuwirth to devise a list of ten films that...

    The Movie of the Month for May 2020 is…

    It’s time to announce the latest Movie of the Month winner! 10 films were originally submitted, but due to Memories of Murder not being readily available anywhere it was agreed to be withdrawn until it’s easier to watch. That left 9 films to be voted upon, and as always only one could win. So, for May 2020 we’ll be discussing… The Taking of Pelham 123! (The original, of course.)
