    The Flaming Lips' art film is difficult to get into on account of the cheap-ass production design and the use of mostly non-actors, but it's still a trippy experience. Based on a movie director Wayne Coyne's mom only think she saw on a sleepless night, Christmas on Mars is about a decaying outpost's crew visited by an alien super-being who stands in as their Santa Claus. Along the way, we'll see (or hallucinate) a whole lot of vaginal imagery, and ultimately ponder on Man's place in the universe and whether it is natural for us to go to the stars, as contrasted by the unnatural virgin (in vitro) births of this future. The silent super-being who seems to give birth to himself from a giant ovum/spaceship, stands in for God and accords the jaded and tormented characters of the film a certain measure of Grace. Of the few actual actors on parade, Adam Goldman makes the best therapist ever. Worth it just for that scene 4 years 6 months ago

    Homemade freaky festive SciFi by cult band The Flaming Lips. Dodgy acting/plot but cool soundtrack & visuals. 5/10.
