Where The Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are is a 1963 children's picture book written and illustrated by American writer Maurice Sendak.

The book is about the wild adventure of a boy named Max who is sent to his room without his supper by his mother as punishment for misbehaving. Misunderstood and rebellious, Max sets sail to the land of the Wild Things, where mischief reigns. Max wears a distinctive wolf costume during his adventures.

Although just ten sentences long, the book is generally regarded as a masterpiece of American illustrated children's literature.

The movie version is directed by Spike Jonze (the director Being John Malkovich; Adaptation; and co-created of MTV's Jackass); which scheduled to be released on October 16, 2009.

The seven creatures (Wild Things) are portrayed by actors in suits up to nine feet tall made of foam, with computer-generated faces. Which I think makes the creature looks "fresh" (as in different from other fantasy creatures in movies); but I can't help the feeling that it looks really fake sometimes.

The whole movie was shot with a handheld camera in order to compliment the "evocative" "other-worldly" feel of the film. And if you notice, it seems that this "other world" is on perpetual sunset. Which makes it beautiful, of course. And different. In a much rugged and indie kind of way.

Enjoy! :D
