The album then features mostly to hip holiday originals like Anna Su ’s mischievous “Santa Will Be Flying Over the Moon,” Spencer Shapeero ’s meditative “The Weather Outside” and FM Radio’s galloping “More Than I Wished For.” Mr. Wainwright returns at the end with his own “Christmas Is for Kids.” A cozy collection of cutting-edge noëls.

Regarding Susan Sontag: Documentary About ‘A Rock Star Of Intellectuals’ Airs On HBO Throughout December, Soundtrack Feat. Laura Karpman & Nora-Kroll Rosenbaum Coming Soon

A highly watchable film…Kates also dresses the screen with poetical visual interludes — animated type resolving into a portrait of the writer, a naked female torso to accompany Sontag’s sexual realizing that she liked women in a way she hadn’t liked men. (It wasn’t until 2000 that she publicly acknowledged her bisexuality.) These moves are not strictly necessary, but they give the film a dreaminess that suits the subject and complements the grainier, rougher archival footage.

-Robert Lloyd, LA Times

Regarding Susan Sontag Soundtrack Coming Soon From Lakeshore Records

Passionate and gracefully outspoken, Susan Sontag was a prominent literary, political and feminist icon.  As a critic, novelist, teacher, filmmaker, activist and iconoclast, her love of learning and examinations of cultural and political ideas made her both a compelling public figure and a significant 20th-century critic.  A complex person, Sontag fiercely guarded her privacy, despite her boldness in the literary world.
