The tailer for Where the Wild Things Are reminds me of childhood, how you could turn everything around you into fascinating games and stories, and turn ordinary things into villains and heroes with your imagination.
Quickly these imaginative stories would disappear and real life would take over, and soon I was too old to create them anymore without feeling silly. Thankfully the same cannot be said about people like Guillermo del Toro, Maurice Sendak, Tarsem Singh and many more people that have held on to a part of their childhood by delivering childhood dreams through art. It's fascinating how many films that deal with this world of childhood dreams have been released recently and have wowed me.
Films like The Fall, Pan's Labyrinth and the upcoming Where The Wild Things Are all tell stories about children creating imaginative worlds to escape reality.
It's truly great that Art is and will always be a sanctuary for childish dreams and stories. There are always people out there that haven't forgotten about their childhood dreams and are willing to revisit their stories and tell the world about them.
We all have a part of our childhood inside us, and it's always great when people allow the world to witness theirs through films and other forms of art.
