Storyline

We have documented an entire year in the lives of five real-bearded professional Santa Clauses to find out what the rest of the year is like for a man who perpetually looks like Jolly Saint Nick. In the process, they are shown for who they actually are, flawed, flesh and blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the spotless, untarnished reputation of the 'Red Suit.' 'I Am Santa Claus' is a documentary that poses a question about a ubiquitous holiday figure that few parents ever ask themselves; 'Whose lap is my child sitting on?' Written by Anonymous

Okay Documentary
17 April 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST

The filmmakers documented an entire year in the lives of five real- bearded professional Santa Clauses to find out what the rest of the year is like for a man who perpetually looks like Jolly Saint Nick. In the process, they are shown for who they actually are, flawed, flesh and blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the beloved Christmas Icon.

Now this documentary is well made but it seems to run all over the place and lose focus on the main topic of the film.

It starts off with 2 Children saying who they think "Santa Is" but the film never returns to them. The children should of been used more. "The Filmmakers" should of taken the route when they say "Santa Lives in the North pole" and then cut to where these "Santa's Live".

Now my heart went out to one man who is Santa. He has no family. He is alone. He has a boyfriend but they live over 700 miles apart. Later when we see them together at a zoo that are holding hands and trust me that is an act of major courage. I loved this man and wanted to see more of him. He was a very nice man and he deserves more out of life then what he is getting.

The film was made in 2012 and 5 years later I hope he is still with his boyfriend and they are living together.

I also want to point out there is one man that plays Santa who is a "Little Jerk". I won't say who it is but trust me he is.

I think if the film had a tighter focus it would of been more memorable. A better film about a man who plays "Santa" is called "Becoming Santa" and that film is great.
