Here’s What Christmas Morning Would Look Like Through the Lens of Your Favorite Directors

Featuring a quirky Wes Anderson Christmas and even a complain-y Woody Allen Christmas

Ever wondered what a Christmas movie directed by Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese or Baz Luhrmann would look like? So have the folks who work at the production company Fourgrounds Media. They envisioned how all their favorite auteurs would film Christmas morning, and compiled a series of vignettes into one clever mash-up. Each scene captures the aesthetics of some of the world’s most iconic directors, from Woody Allen to Stanley Kubrick to Lars von Trier. There’s even a nod to Michael Moore, who we see flinging muckraking questions at Santa Claus.

The video provides a pretty comprehensive array of viewpoints, but we wouldn’t have minded seeing Christmas morning through the eyes of Sofia Coppola, Quentin Tarantino or even John Hughes.

Tarantino gets enough hype as it is---I would have liked to have seen Spike Lee, Kathryn Bigelow, or maybe even Nicole Holofcener,for that matter.

Yes, Quentin Tarantino is definitely missing. Although it is still great and I would vote for Allen's version.

that's funny. hmm, look at all those men, light skinned too. They are the ones who shape our minds - those men. But really it is funny, just can't help to notice.

Haha. This was more entertaining and accurate than I'd expected it to be. Loved the famous Lars Von Trier slow-motion

They would have shown the Terry Gilliam Christmas Morning but they had to wait for the Director's Cut to come out before it was any good.
