My absolute most favorite Holiday movie (except from Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas) is Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shot. Though the movie' subject is not Holiday specific, I adore the way Kubrick brought the Christmas atmosphere to life (hello fairy lights bonanza!) and the luxuriance of decors and costumes. It's also my absolute favorite "relationship" movie, I love the way the theme of temptation is treated and how the everyday couple is portrayed. An absolute most see I say, I could have shared pictures of the whole movie, it's just SO pretty and enticing.
Stanley Kubrick was such a genius and important artist in the History of filmmaking and The Stanley Kubrick Archives book is a fabulous gift for the cinephile on your list (Ramiro and I devoured it on our honeymoon trip!).
What's your favorite non typical Holiday movie?
