So, we went to see "Where the Wild Things Are" this past weekend. Cuh-ray-zee.
It was BIZARRE! Obviously, it was cinematically gorgeous ... mesmerizing to watch.
But I really just didn't get it. I mean, it was nicely done. A good interpretation of the short story in the children's book. But ... I dunno.
Would kids really get that each monster was a representation of Max's struggles and personality as he works through them?
It definitely reminded me of those feelings of inadequacy and just frustration at times from the process of growing up. But maybe that's why it was so "un-graspable" to me ... I am no longer that way ... no longer a child.
I'd like to know if younger kids were more appreciative of the movie -- and what they though it was about.
And I'd definitely recommend it for a great 2 hours of visual artistry.
That's my two cents .... in case you were wondering :) hehehee
