Where The Wild Things Are: best stills of 2009
So far I haven't come across a still from Where the Wild Things Are, the new Spike Jonze movie, that hasn't been mesmerising. Each one has stopped me in my tracks. The film has been hauntingly shot, clearly, in unusually beautiful part of Australia; but it's also the sure pleasure of seeing real, non-CGI creatures that are actually standing there, in the same frame as the kid, catching the light this way or that. You don't realise how much you miss it until you see it.
