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.

A fresh perspective so relevant to post 9/11 America.
22 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Be My Oswald is a "sit up and take notice" work of film. If you haven't questioned your values recently, this movie will help change that. Taking steps to question or change our "institutions" is not that easy. How well are we doing, as a society, when it comes to meeting peoples' basic needs? What do we value? Where is our responsibility in all of it?

Be My Oswald made me think about which personal character attributes contribute to terrorism. We've gotten complacent in our thinking about where terrorism comes from. It's not just coming out of the Middle East. Americans are unhappy with what America has become. The "shopping mall" is much too pervasive in our society. Again, what do we value?

If you like conspiracy/mystery movies, this movie satisfies the craving for something that'll keep you guessing.
