Movie Reviews

Movies.com - 10/10 by Dave WhiteIt's kind of astonishing when something this odd slips through the cracks of the Hollywood mainstream.
The Film Yap - 10/10 by Nick RogersThe film encourages embracing all that we are, but it's not presumptuous to suggest what "it" is, as it differs for every child. Profoundly thoughtful, unexpectedly moving, adventurous in spirit and unforgettable, it's one of the best films of 2009.
Toronto Star - 10/10 by Peter HowellIt's a joy for thinking moviegoers of any age. It doesn't seek to "keep out all the sadness," yet neither does it wallow in gloom. Instead it presents childhood as a journey filled with things both wonderful and fearful, and ultimately all of the mind.
The New Republic - 10/10 by Christopher OrrWhere the Wild Things Are may not be a great film for children (or, at least, most children). But it is something rarer still: a great, and unsparing, film about childhood.
eFilmCritic.com - 10/10 by Peter SobczynskiIt not only manages to bring a beloved classic to the screen in a manner that perfectly captures the spirit of the book but expands and build on its themes and ideas in ways that are both enormously engaging and strikingly powerful.
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 10/10 by Colin CovertIn an era glutted with sanitized, prefabricated, computer-generated kids' stuff, this is an experience of sophisticated cross-generational appeal. It digs deep into childhood's bright, manic exuberance and also its confusion and gloom.
Film Freak Central - 10/10 by Walter Chawthe rare work of art in any media that actually evokes the experience of sadness, the sensation of melancholy, the mechanism of regret. We're lucky to have it.
TheFilmFile.com - 10/10 by Dustin PutmanBold and cinematic, at once wondrously epic yet achingly intimate and honest. Touting it as this century's answer to 1939's The Wizard of Oz would not be flagrant hyperbole.
LarsenOnFilm - 10/10 by Josh Larsen...gets one thing crucially right about the 1963 Maurice Sendak picture book on which it's based: Max, the young hero, is not a nice kid.
Orlando Weekly - 10/10 by Justin StroutFrom the moment we meet Max, however, all of that flies out the window as we soar out of our own expectations and into the fantastic world Jonze presents.
