Sendak Celebrated

Many feel that Spike Jonze’s movie of  Where the Wild Things Are will scare children. Even so, it is expected to lead at the box office this weekend (predictions range from $25 to $40 million in ticket sales).

The New York Times review says the film “startles and charms and delights largely because Mr. Jonze’s filmmaking exceeds anything he’s done in either of his inventive previous features.”

If you don’t want to fight the crowds at the cineplex tonight, you can stay home and watch the HBO documentary by Jonze about Maurice Sendak, Tell Them Anything You Want.
