  • Jonze has filmed a fantasy as if it were absolutely real, allowing us to see the world as Max sees it, full of beauty and terror. The brilliant songs, by Karen O (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and the Kids, enhance the film's power. show more

  • Like the book, the movie blends a primitive quality with an imaginative artfulness. It also amplifies upon the story's gentle, sly wit. show more

    This movie was awesome. The acting was great and the filming and setting was absolutely beautiful. I'm very surprised it did not win any major awards. I personally think this is not really for children but for mature children.
