Babbo bastardo by Terry Zwigoff( Visual )

Trama: Willie, rude e alcolizzato, e Marcus, un nano di colore, svolgono una strana attività: ogni anno, in prossimità delle feste natalizie, si fanno assumere da un grande magazzino per intrattenere i bambini travestiti rispettivamente da Babbo Natale e da elfo. Lo scopo recondito, però, è quello di studiare il sistema d'allarme per poi, al sopraggiungere della festa, svaligiare la cassaforte del centro commerciale e sparire senza lasciare traccia. Di città in città, la singolare coppia di malviventi giunge a Phoenix, dove viene assunta in un imponente centro commerciale dal direttore Bob Chipeska. Questi, tuttavia, insospettito dal linguaggio volgare e dalla predisposizione di Willie ad appartarsi nel reparto taglie forti con alcune clienti, incarica il responsabile della sicurezza del centro, Gin, di svolgere qualche indagine sui nuovi assunti. Tra la moltitudine di bambini che ogni giorno si reca dallo stravagante Babbo Natale, sempre in ritardo e spesso visibilmente ubriaco, spicca Thurman, un biondo e paffuto fanciullo di otto anni orfano di madre, che vive con la sola nonna perché, sostiene, il padre è via per una lunga escursione in montagna (ma successivamente si scoprirà essere in prigione). Nonostante la volgarità di Willie, Thurman, vessato dai coetanei per il suo aspetto, è attratto dall'anomalo Babbo Natale e lo attende dopo che questi ha ultimato la giornata di lavoro Willie, dal canto suo, visto che nella stanza del motel in cui risiede c'è ad attenderlo quello che pare essere un poliziotto, decide di trasferirsi in casa del bambino, approfittando del fatto che la nonna siede, perennemente, davanti alla televisione e che dimostra di non fare troppo caso alla sua presenza Thurman, tuttavia, si affeziona sempre di più a Willie, il quale è costante preda dell'alcool e dei suoi appetiti sessuali (porta in casa del bambino anche la sua nuova e dolce amante Sue): progressivamente, malgrado il cinismo dell'uomo, in prossimità del grande colpo che Willie e Marcus stanno per portare a termine, il candore di Thurman riuscirà a fare breccia nel cuore del falso Babbo Natale e, in qualche modo, a redimerlo
