Storyline

A militant vegetarian, known as B, recruits a clueless socialite activist, known as A, for a holiday mission that might change the world. They communicate via phone and fax as A completes a precise list of tasks in preparation for their big event. Unannounced, B joins A at the space the evening before the parade and forces A to make her formal commitment to the mission. A bloody robbery involving a neighbor and an impulsive move from A dealing with a catered Thanksgiving breakfast threaten to compromise B's time sensitive plan. As B makes her final preparations and her intent to assassinate Santa Claus becomes clear to A, a life or death struggle ensues as Santa Claus makes his grand entrance, quite possibly for the last time.

Striking, Subversive, and Sublime
17 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A visual stunner, Be My Oswald is the long anticipated second feature by visionary NYC filmmaker Don Cato.

I will not discuss plot points here, so as not to give anything away. Suffice to say you owe it to yourself to experience this brilliantly directed, powerfully acted, and delightfully subversive bit of yuletide.

Besides Cato's seamless direction, the other highlight of this film is the slyly oblique performance by Katha Cato.

This is one for the time capsule. Cato and Cato have altered the art form.
