Like Batman Returns, the mind-bending 80s cult hit Brazil is not so much a film about Christmas as it is a film that takes place during the holiday. It's a lush, colorful tale set in a nightmare inducing, Orwell inspired vision of the future, and there are several key scenes (like when its lead character is visited by a wheelchair bound Santa while held captive in a sanitarium) that use the holiday to great effect. Truth be told, Brazil is a masterpiece and hasn't aged a day in over twenty-five years, so check it out!
