Where The Wild Things Are (2009)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
10.29.09

Where The Wild Things Are (2009) This film adaptation of the Maurice Sendak's children's book amazingly captures that feel of what it's like to be a kid, especially how they don't know limits or repercussions of their actions. When is playing too hard too hard? How do you deal with changes in life you don't like?

At the beginning of the film we're introduced to Max, who is dressed up in an animal costume and is chasing his dog around the house. Then we see him building an igloo outside in the snow. He wants to show his sister but she's busy with her teenaged friends. And later that night his mother is busy with a date she has over. Max doesn't like this one bit and starts acting up. When things get out of hand he runs away--and finds himself on a small sailboat on his way to a fantastic island.

He first comes across the creatures in the forest when one of them, Carol, is wrecking all of their huts. They all stop what they are doing when they see this small human. Max tells them that he's a king, has been for over twenty years, and they readily accept him as their leader. The main thing he has them do is build a huge, complex fort where they can all live together. In a nutshell, the monsters he encounters on the island represent different parts of himself, or his family, and he has to reconcile what's wrong in his mind before he can return back home.

The creatures look exactly how they are supposed to. The combination of people in suits with the CGI to show their facial expressions is convincing. It also reminded me of H.R. Puffenstuff, which is perhaps unavoidable. Recommended.
