Director - Spike Jonze
Genre - Adventure/Fantasy
Based on a book by Maurice Sendak, the story is one concerning a loner of a boy named Max. Max is a sensitively tuned daydreamer and is largely left alone by his family who have no time for his whining ways. One not so fine day, Max decided to run off to an alternate world, an island inhabited by Sesame Streets rejects. This place which exists only in Max's mind provides curious amusement for awhile, but soon it becomes apparent that nothing much goes on here. The Wild Things play pretty games and are just as juvenile as Max, given that they ARE his creations. All things considered, it is a gateway into a child's mind, warts and all. We couldn't care less since we're not parents or work as child educators. The computer rendered creatures are jaw-droppingly life-like though.
