anarresti's rating of the film Where the Wild Things Are

Such a strange looking child fantasy movie. Neil Gayman once said something like, "the thing about monster stories is not that they exist but that they can be defeated". There is something wild and dangerous and tender and weird in those creatures, and absolutely wonderful and unreal. We do believe that they come from a child's mind. And they seem to get out of control, like imagination sometimes does.
