Christmas on Mars

Shot on weekends over the course of several years, this DIY sci-fi film comes to us courtesy of Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne. Trading on the strange humor and quirked-out symbolism of the band, Christmas on Mars casts the musicians as astronauts trying to improve morale on a nearly abandoned Martian colony by hosting a Christmas pageant. Unfortunately, the oxygen generator and the gravity control pod are on the fritz. Will the arrival of a mysterious alien superbeing (Coyne) help save these isolated spacemen? As you might expect, this one's filled with psychedelic sci-fi imagery and trippy ambient tuneage. 82 minutes
