where the wild things are


please click on photo to see blurry photo up close



this is the type of movie you think about again and again after you leave the theatre. and although I shed lots of tears and I had a huge lump in my throat towards the end and then again at the very end, this movie was not your typical tear jerker. in fact, for me, it was all a bit bizarre and thought provoking, and yet a totally unique movie. this is probably why it was the best movie I have seen in a long time. a word of caution, this is not exactly a children's movie.
thanks babzy for recommending I post the trailer! it's right here.

This one's been a long time in the making and I'm hearing many good things about it. The illustrations in the book are stupendously glorious.

I have not seen it, but would love to. Sendac is a favorite of mine.

The NY Times review was less taken with it than you but they did agree its not a childrens movie per se ... and I did hear one person in a shop I was in say that the book was better .. honest!

One of my kids' (and my) fave books when they were little. The more I hear about this movie, the more intrigued I am.

I loved it. I couldn't stop crying at the end, glad I wasn't the only one!
