Where the Wild Things Are

This week, we look at Spike Jonze’s third film, Where the Wild Things Are. We discuss how it’s more a movie about childhood than a children’s movie, the interesting way the wild things were shown, how weirdly funny the film can be at times, and how personal the film likely is to Jonze. We then transition into a look at Jonze’s career as an auteur, and how he has harnessed his seemingly childlike creativity into a career unlike many others.
