Where the Wild Things Are

Just saw Where the Wild Things Are which is a dark, moody, psychologically adroit and incredibly moving film. Not really for kids – though it speaks directly to your inner child in an archetypal, Jungian way. I was deeply moved and almost as deeply troubled – more like rattled. The film just had this child-logic that felt emotionally true. I’m still trying to unravel my response. I think it spoke to feelings of helplessness and powerlessness that never fully go away, the attempt to understand the ever-changing social dynamics of an alien adult world (that never really gets any easier or clearer). Really great, quite an accomplishment. Here’s the trailer:
