    The Movie of the Month for February 2021 is…

    It’s Movie of the Month announcement time! For February we let Richard, the host of the Lambcast, make all the choices, because he has to endure the other winners for the rest of the year, and this time around he picked, shocking no-one, a bunch of films from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. You all voted, one of them won, and the film we’ll be celebrating in February 2021 is… Le Samouraï!

    No congratulations...
