    ★★★½

    Walking into businesses during Christmas time always feels so empty and artificial. There’s a distinct smell of plastic in the air wafting from the fake pines and the dull echoing of holiday music in the background.

Just tiny things here and there that were slightly skewed, probably due to recollecting the social memory of this film rather than the actual film itself.
