Where the Wild Things Are

Have you seen it?

I loved it - for its pensive introspection, mult-layered psychology, wild monster fantasy land (filmed largely in Victoria, as it happens), cute kid, nice photography, crazy original soundtrack (by Karen O), and awesome font.

However I don't think it's a kids movie.

I also think it raises some important issues about our universal yearning for harmony in community, for eternal happiness, for pleasure and escapism. I'd love to see it again.
