Documentarian Rohan Spong (T Is For Teacher, All the Way Through Evening, Winter At Westbeth) joins us as we wrap up the year that was. We look at a handful of this month’s films, including Star Wars spinoff prequel Rogue One, Jim Jarmusch’s contemplative drama Paterson, science fiction drama Passengers, and Amma Asante’s true story adaptation A United Kingdom. Sophie, Lee and Rohan then compare notes on their absolute favourite films of 2016. Then, Rohan discusses the films and career of the director whose name is synonymous with grand, epic filmmaking: legendary filmmaker David Lean.
Ozploitation legend Brian Trenchard-Smith joins us for our third anniversary show, in which we debate the films of May 2013, pitch Disney our own ideas for standalone Star Wars films, and check out the career of auteur extraordinaire Quentin Tarantino.
