Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are is easily among the top films of 2009 that I’m dying to put in front of my eyeballs. That it scares some folks on an emotional level and isn’t the safe and commercial film one would expect from a studio — well, that absolutely thrills me. When a test screening was seen months ago… back when there were basically zero digital effects and they were still trying to grapple with how they were even going to solve the effects challenge… the film was raved about. That was well over a year ago… Now, /Film has our first glimpse at the menagerie of the Wild Things and they’re wild indeed – give em a peek here
