Sophie and Lee sit down for their first ever face-to-face episode, recorded just north of London. They look back at the key film of December 2015, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, and eschew both the past UK and future Australian release dates for Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin’s STEVE JOBS biopic. They then compare notes on their respective five favourite films of 2015, but will there be any common ground in these wildly different lists? Finally, they take a look at the short filmography of a filmmaker who was far better known in the music world: Belgian singer Jacques Brel, whose two films as director are little-known, but undeniably brilliant.

Due to the last minute switcheroo of this month’s episode, we didn’t have time to do any announcements, show notes or cheat sheets… but for the record, the Cheat Sheet would have been Franz and Le Far West, partly due to their brilliance, mostly due to the fact that they’re the only two films Brel made.
But most importantly, check out Hi4H’s 2015 Year In Review, featuring Sophie, Lee and Paul looking over their experiences on the show this year, as well as a collation of the Best Of lists of as many of our previous guests as we could locate. A must read!
Outro music: score from Le Far West (1973), composed by Jacques Brel and Paul AndrÃ©ota
