Where the Wild Things Are

October 20, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

The hype is already established.  The critics are raving.  We all know the story.  We’ve all seen the trailer.  And now I’m telling you that this movie is 200% worth the price of admission.  I’ve never seen anything like it.  Spike Jonze has absolutely surpassed any expectation you could have leveled upon him.  Where “Being John Malkovich” was conceptually groundbreaking, “Wild Things” is, simply put, visually awe inspiring.  Furthermore, Jonze and Dave Eggers took Sendak’s original 10 sentences of dialogue, and created a masterful think-piece on the nature of childhood, isolation, self-expression, and self-discovery.  Listen, see this movie as soon as possible.  I simply can’t emphasize this point enough.  It’s just one of those movies whose importance is so clearly established irrespective of whatever acclaim may come its way.  Whether it’s an era-defining film I can’t say, but it has certainly set a new bar for what can be done with the medium.
