Offbeat Christmas


Film Club Rule #1,012: It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but sometimes we like films that show you the other side of that.

Tis the season to watch holiday films, but you don’t want to watch Miracle on 34th Street for the fiftieth time. Well, we’ve got some answers for you. First up, Jeff talks about the little known Finnish film Rare Exports, a fantasy horror film about that gives a new origin story for Santa Claus. Rusty discusses the Danny Boyle film Millions which takes place over the holidays, and Heather plumbs the John Cusack depths once again to bring us the drunken offbeat holiday classic The Ice Harvest. We also cover some other non mainstream holiday films like Black Christmas, The Apartment, even The Life of Brian. So join us as we offer some new suggestions for films to watch as you wrap presents or hang out after a big meal.
