"Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence," is today's pick for 25 classic Christmas movies. This one is for the art house and David Bowie fan in the family.

Nagisa Oshima directed this 1983 dramatic war film. The movie is set in a Japanese prisoner of war camp and it shows the relationship between the soldiers of both countries.

Tom Conti played Mr. Lawrence and the rest of the cast is David Bowie, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Takeshi Kitano, and Jack Thompson.

The movie is currently on Netflix and while this rated R movie is a heavy subject, there is some inspiring things that happen. The movie will bring you to tears and it's probably Bowie's best. It does also have a Criterion release!

So "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence" is today's pick and once again it's on Netflix. It's a very intense movie with its many themes and with Christmas in the backdrop, this one is a winner to be on the list!
