Special Seasonal Screning: Christmas on Mars
Wednesday, 16 December 2009
This mostly black and white, dream-like yuletide fable is a fantastical film freakout featuring the Flaming Lips made with the style and DIY charm you’d expect from the band and their frontman Wayne Coyne. As space-suited men wander around narrow enclosures in various stages of disassociation, Santas commit airlock suicide, and a nurse/mother in a giant light-bulb births a bubble baby. What’s not to like?
