So, Gremlins is a Christmas film - or should I say critique of America's economic system??? I've never seen it before, but it's in the background as I'm doing other work. References to domestic vs foreign automobiles, "exotic" Chinese gifts, greed-is-good type characters ("I want your dog!"), must-have Xmas toys, down on their luck small-time townies, Xmas as a TV mediated mass-media experience, the YMCA pool as a dangerous thing, drunk cops, "I told you we should have got a Zenith!"
