On "Where the Wild Things Are"
From The Dispatch:
The final product may be much darker and more serious than the original book, but it perfectly captures its spirit. Jonze is being frank about childhood, balancing innocence in the face of reality and the modern world in a way that is both enthralling and deeply moving. It's a mood piece, a wholly transporting and wonderful film that exists in that special realm where the young and the young at heart meet. "Where the Wild Things Are" isn't just a great children's film, it's a great film period.Click here to read my full review.
