Kitsch alert! Worshipper at the shrine of Elvis, fans of unabashed bad taste, followers of pop culture take note. Ten Thousand Points of Light is a wry, understated and terrifically funny look at the Townsends, a suburban Atlanta family who, every holiday season for eight years, transformed their Stone Mountain area brick ranch house into a meteoric blaze of Christmas lights. Known as both the Christmas House and the the Elvis House, the Townsend s home was visited yearly by vast numbers of people, many of whom viewed a trip to the land of a thousand tchotchkes as an annual pilgrimage. Linda Dubler, 1991
