    So Fight Club is also a Christmas movie?

    For the record I do like Die Hard.

    Some Xmas movies are made to be Xmas movies other just do it by accident and are the better for it; Die Hard is a good example of the latter imo.

    Fanny and Alexander (1982), an Ingmar Bergman film, in my opinion his very best work.

    The New York Times Review: "...Fanny and Alexander is a big, dark, beautiful, generous family chronicle... It moves between the worlds of reality and imagination with the effortlessness characteristic of great fiction as it tells the story of the quite marvelous Ekdahl family... "
    Full review http://www.nytimes.com/movie/review?res=9F51A0C01138F935A35750C8BF67 (June 17, 1983).

    It can be seen every Christmas on Swedish Television. If you have a chance to see this film on your film channels, take it. It is a masterpiece.
