Merry Christmas, Kristian Bruun!

The holidays are upon us, so here’s the first Christmas episode of Someone Else’s Movie — which finds returning guest Kristian Bruun rolling through his favourite seasonal selections, and also Love, Actually. Because, well, some traumas have to be confronted head-on.

It’s live on iTunes and Stitcher, or available via direct download. I’m really happy with this one; it was just a pleasure to sit down with Kristian and talk, like people, for an hour or so. Hope you enjoy it.

  1. Excellent episode. Keep up the proselytizing for Arthur Christmas. Everyone who refuses to see the movie should be permanently wrapped by Briony “3 pieces of sticky tape” the Wrapping Elf. It’s our Christmas Eve Eve movie for this year (actual Christmas Eve is reserved for the classics, It’s a Wonderful Life and the Alastair Sims version of A Christmas Carol).

    I have a couple recommendations for you, Kate, and Dexter if you haven’t seen/read these. A small seasonal token…

    Based on your discussion with Kristian of Rare Exports…Dutch Christmas horror movie Sint (it wasn’t mentioned in the podcast so I don’t know if you’ve seen it or not). Instead of a dark and delightful take on Finnish Christmas traditions, it gives a sharp, really sharp, twist to the Dutch celebration of St. Nicholas Day.

    Also, if you ever have a chance to read in between all your movie watching, interviewing, podcasting, and writing…the book The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore. It’s seasonally appropriate (and one subplot provides a modern take on a classic Christmas short story), and although it draws in characters from Moore’s other books, you don’t have to have read any of the others to enjoy the story.

    Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Seasons Greetings, and may all your Festivus grievances be light.

    1. I’ve read “The Stupidest Angel” — huge fan of Moore’s over here, all the way back to “Practical Demonkeeping” — but I’d never even heard of “Sint”, so I’m all over that. Thanks for the suggestion!
