    Powerful. Wonderful film. For those out there condemning the film for it's bleakness, you are very unaware of it's purpose. It's obvious Where The Wild Things Are has affected you deeply with it's near perfect representation of the human condition. What's so remarkable about this film is it's ability to express so much with such subtlety. No spoon-feeding Powerful. Wonderful film. For those out there condemning the film for it's bleakness, you are very unaware of it's purpose. It's obvious Where The Wild Things Are has affected you deeply with it's near perfect representation of the human condition. What's so remarkable about this film is it's ability to express so much with such subtlety. No spoon-feeding needed. It's a painfully beautiful story full of monstrous and disorienting emotions; the core of humanity. This is not just a film for children(which it is,) but a film for any rational, inquiring, and compassionate person. So many people are arguing over whether it's appropriate for children. That the story too frightening and too adult. Not true. I remember these emotions. I remember these thoughts. Children are not and should not be excluded from humanity. Imagination is a person's mechanism for exploring life and it's challenges. It's often terrifying and it's often melancholy. Children will appreciate this movie and, with hope, be forced to think. It's foolish to believe children are devoid of confronting fears we all have. Expand

    Two hours of misery, boredom, and irritation redeemed (?) by a ten-minute final sermon to ":seize the day." I sure wish that I had seized this beautiful fall afternoon in Minneapolis rather than sitting in a theater watching people whose vapid lives annoyed me. Hey, people, you can choose your attitude about things. You create many of the conditions in your lives by your behavior.

I sure wish that I had seized this beautiful fall afternoon in Minneapolis rather than sitting in a theater watching people whose vapid lives annoyed me. Hey, people, you can choose your attitude about things. You create many of the conditions in your lives by your behavior. Grow up! Grow out to others. And this comes from a retired French teacher, lover of Paris and most things French but, come to think of it, not of Parisian ennui. Expand

  1. Paris is a bittersweet film containing rare moments of comedy.
  2. 50
    At a 124-minute runtime, though, the writer-director has stretched a wide canvas, and only sporadically found anything worth filling it with.
  3. 40
    This could have been a true urban mosaic. Instead, we simply get a vision of Paris as the city of lite.
