Wild Things Strike NY Times, Spike Jonze is Still A Hero


If you’re like me, you’ve been following Spike Jonze’s next project Where the Wild Things Are off and on since well, it began, a million years ago. I came home today and was lovingly linked to this article in the NY Times about the movie by my friend Andrew. You’re the man now, dawg. I had heard that this project was in limbo, with Jonze and the Talking Heads and Powers That Be not really being on the same page regarding the project. Jonze has always been a hero of mine for his work on Adaptation alone, so this profile piece was really tight. Go check it out, but I’m going to leave you with a quote from the article that encapsulates why I love Jonze and his unfettered imagination:

If you compromise what you’re trying to do just a little bit, you’ll end up compromising a little more the next day or the next week, and when you lift your head you’re suddenly really far away from where you’re trying to go.
