With Home Alone turning 25 this year — and Macaulay Culkin no longer looking like "the cutest fucking 8-year-old in the universe" — Vanity Fair gives us a bit of history on the movie-within-a-movie, Angels with Filthy Souls, the "forbidden flick nine-year-old Kevin McCallister at last indulges in while enjoying a tremendous helping of ice cream."

Reeking of authenticity, Angels with Filthy Souls is not just a uniquely persuasive parody. It’s the perfect movie-within-a-movie: a one-minute-and-20-second noir-in-a-nutshell that feels like a fleeting glimpse of a long-lost classic. Its dialogue is crisp, the characters and performances credible, the rapid escalation of its drama enthralling. Plus it culminates in not just the most memorable utterance in Home Alone but one of the great movie lines of all time: “Keep the change, ya filthy animal”—the sardonic invitation since emblazoned on many a Christmas sweater.
