I just saw WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and couldn't have been more delighted. The casting, art direction, script, camera work, soundtrack--all very impressive. It's shocking how the screenwriters were able to extend the short book with little dialogue into a full-length feature film. And as someone who worshipped that book as a child, the powers that be were true to the book's original spirit which is essentially trippy gibberish. I can't recommend it highly enough. I haven't laughed out loud that much at a film since BORAT. Also quite touching at times. it's a complete escape well worth my $12. Highly recommended.
