Where The Wild Things Are
I loved this Maurice Sendak-penned book from a very young age, and I'm definitely not alone -- 'Where The Wild Things Are' is considered a children's literary classic. And director Spike Jonze has made some wonderful films/videos before ('Being John Malkovich', clips for Bjork, Pavement, Beastie Boys, Sonic Youth, Chemical Brothers, etc.). A good start, to be certain. To top it all off, in this trailer, The Arcade Fire's music ('Wake Up') is just heartwrenching. Count me in for this weird little adaptation - it may suck, or it may be something magical and beautiful. You be the judge.
