Jingle Bells Rocks (2014) DOC NYC 2014

People who really LOVE Christmas music are a strange lot. The mad passion to collect Christmas songs, way beyond the well-known classics can be pathological. I know this from personal experience as a crazy who will buy an album of songs because it looks different or goofy or makes me go WTF.

If you’re like me and love weird Christmas music, or music films or great just documentaries, then you have to watch JINGLE BELL ROCKS a wild and wonton, not to mention very funny and smile producing documentary on the world of Christmas songs and the people who love them. This is just a blast and a half and the perfect film to clear your mind after a heavy day at Doc NYC or life in general.

This is a look at the people who collect the songs and albums and the people who make them. Wanna know who it was who sang the song “Santa Claus is a Black Man”? Here’s your chance. Ever wonder why so many Christmas albums get turned out? You’ll find the answer here. You’ll find the questions to a lot of questions you never knew you had.

I love this film. I want a copy of this film.

When I finished the film I took to the phone and computer and began to tell everyone I knew that they had to see this film. I had to make people aware that this wonderful little film was out there.

You’ll forgive the lack of details but this is one of those films that best you discover on your own. I don’t want it spoiled before you see it. You need to just go and see this on your own.

And yea I know it’s late on a school night but god damn somethings are worth dragging your ass to work the next day to see.

This is one of the must see films at DOC NYC. While I can’t say if this is one of the best films of the year, it’s certainly one of the best times I’ve had at the movies all year.
