White Reindeer

Hey, who jerked off into my Christmas stocking? It must have been Zach Clark, who wrote and directed this perverse, blacker-than-black yuletide comedy. A real estate agent (Anna Margaret Hollyman) returns home one December evening to discover that her husband has been murdered; after one of his pals reveals that the husband was having an affair with a stripper, the bewildered widow tracks down the other woman, starts hanging out with her and her friends, and gets sucked into a downward spiral of drugs and debauchery that still seems preferable to hanging out with relatives and drinking eggnog in a red sweater. Hollyman gives a fine deadpan performance as the heroine, who’s searching for peace while everyone else is searching for a piece of ass.
