A company called Fourgrounds Media has envisioned how Christmas morning might look through the eyes of 10 Hollywood auteurs — from American treasures Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese to the Euro-flavored stylings of Lars von Trier and Werner Herzog.
While the Sergei Eisenstein (“Battleship Potemkin”) reference may sail over the heads of younger viewers, they’ll likely appreciate faux-offerings from Wes Anderson, Baz Luhrmann and documentarian Michael Moore, who accuses Santa of playing favorites.
Iconic directors Woody Allen and Stanley Kubrick are also given the parody treatment (though Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith and Christopher Nolan will have to wait until next year for their own holiday-themed vignettes).
Are there any other filmmakers whose style you’d like to see spoofed next year? Let us know in the comments below.
