Home for the Holidays

Martha Stewart Living

Rhino/MSL

Dear Mom:

You’d hardly recognize the Compound. Artlos picked up a copy of Martha Stewart’s Home for the Holidays on a supply run to Wal-Mart, and it’s like the whole camp is transformed. Some of the new recruits have frosted their grenades with silver spray paint, and I swear they look like pinecones in fresh-fallen snow! The sound of Greg Lake’s “I Believe In Father Christmas” and Dan Fogelberg’s “What Child Is This?” blares tinnily from the intercom system, a vast improvement from the Messages of Directed Anger. Even Mrs. Leader is getting into it – she says for Christmas dinner we can have some protein! I’m not sure what that is, but it must be good.

Anyway, I have to go. Some of the fellas are making wreaths from razor wire, and I promised I’d help. It’s just like Christmas at the Old Compound! Hugs to sis. Your son,

Screen Reviews

Lily and Generoso review Hold Me Tight, the sixth feature directed by renowned actor Mathieu Amalric. Centered around a brilliant performance from Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island), Hold Me Tight is an unpredictable and remarkable psychological drama.
