Christmas Vacation. Jeremiah S. Chechik. 1989. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
As a critique of American masculine delusion, cuts closer to bone than the more sympathetic "Brad's Status". Chase brings a lot of psychotic energy. The casting... very plain people... is also a plus. More retrograde stuff: Poor people are disgusting, Ideal social structure=Benevolent Boss, Disdainful portrayal of the bougie DINKs next door vs. severely fucked but ultimately 'morally correct' nuclear family... blech.
