Phil Worfel's rating of the film Where the Wild Things Are

Bravo to Jonze for making an uncompromising picture that nails everything that he was trying to accomplish. Whether or not it lives up to peoples expectations or if it is "kid friendly" or if this is the best possible version of this story, it is piece that is undeniably unique and extraordinary in its vision. This is the kind of filmmaking that, successful or no, should be the norm and not the exception.
