Where the Wild Things Are
Spike Jonze, 2009
USA | Format: Blu-Ray | 101 minutes

Maurice Sendak left behind an uncontested legacy as the most important children’s book artist of his times—albeit one who constantly pushed at the perceived limitations of children’s intellects, treating his readers with the respect he believed they so richly deserved. Late in life, Sendak saw his seminal (and largely autobiographical) Where the Wild Things Are brought to vivid big-screen life by Being John Malkovich and Adaptation auteur Spike Jonze, a passionate Sendak fan.
