Too much director, too little music
17 June 2014 | by oira79See all my reviews

There are times when it seems like this documentary about offbeat Christmas music is going to take off. A visit to Run of Run-DMC for an interview about his own hiphop Christmas song is excellent. An interview with a singer who wrote a Christmas song for Miles Davis is fun. John Waters is interviewed, and he's always entertaining.

But ultimately the film is a little disappointing because there isn't quite enough Christmas music that's weird enough. If you listen to alternative radio at Christmas, you've probably heard weirder stuff than this. Though I did like the song about Santa arriving on a nuclear missile.
