Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Brenda and I just got done watching Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, a movie that Hulu is offering for free at the moment. It’s a Finnish movie (subtitled) which is hard to pigeon-hole. There’s a wee bit of horror genre in it as well as some Hitchcock-style psychological thriller. It’s definitely not a cute little Christmas movie. The ending was very weak – a huge let down.

But with all that being said, if you want an excellent illustration of the horrors of the doctrine of salvation which doesn’t include pure grace and pure love on the divine side, this is it. That sort of works salvation, when the implications are taken seriously, are pretty horrible, and this illustrates it beautifully.

He’s keeping a list and checking it twice / going to find out who’s naughty or nice …

Believe me, you really don’t want that Santa coming to town.
