The Best Christmas Movie: It’s a Wonderful Life [Art 101]

[Art (noun): 1. the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. 2. the various branches of creative activity.]

Its a wonderful life coverChristmas-themed movies don’t require a hankering for popcorn and stadium seating to enjoy. Good ones can be watched alone, just you in the holiday spirit.

But the colorful holiday season is not about seclusion. It’s best enjoyed with others, all grouped together sharing their feelings, memories, laughs, gifts and gamut of emotions.

Christmas movies encompass what the festive day, and the sometimes not-so-festive days leading up to it, are all about. And these movies glamorize those moments through an eclectic array of stories, and imaginative and relatable characters.

A good Christmas movie is a true work of art, but which film is the best of them all? Maybe for that movie is ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’!

Director Frank Capra’s 1946 Christmas tale of dreamer George Bailey’s (James Stewart) inability to leave his hometown does show its age.

Moreover, though, it shows its experience; Life’s gradual plot escalation, portrayal of dysfunction with a sense of humor, and an emotionally rewarding climatic finale has inspired all holiday movies that followed.

For George life’s not always so wonderful, with or without him. Part of living better is learning to make the best of the time you have. |
