WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE
2009, Warner Bros., 101 min, USA, Dir: Spike Jonze

In Spike Jonze’s lyrically atmospheric adaptation of the classic Maurice Sendak picture book, Max Records stars as Max, a young boy who throws such a temper tantrum that he is transported to a world of bellowing beasts and jungle treehouses. Wearing his hirsute onesie and an impish smirk, Max is crowned king of the unruly creatures. With the voice talents of James Gandolfini, Catherine O’Hara and Paul Dano as the tempestuously neurotic Wild Things, and a kicky score by Coen Brothers favorite Carter Burwell and Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O.
