It seems like your name needs to be Spike in order to make dope movies, na not really but I like 2 directors with names with spike in it, either ways this new movie coming out called + WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE + looks intensely/visually/satisfying and the central theme of the movie might actually be also and equally spectifying [yes I just killed the english language]. You might also be wondering why this guys name is being put in the title and you’ve never heard his name before, well it beceuse his been doing weird videos from everyone from B.I.G to BJork and back to gap. I decided to post up a snippet of an interview by Vice and 2 of his different styles of directing, if you don’t like these then you probably shouldn’t check out the movie + enjoy // CLCK THRU TO READ MORE >>
In the five years since we’ve become friends with Spike Jonze, he has never not been working on his movie adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book Where the Wild Things Are. It’s been a life-consuming, soul-questioning, long-day’s-journey-into-night, half-decade quest for Spike to make this film according to his very specific vision for it, and it’s been hugely inspiring to watch it grow and evolve. And now, like a beautiful little baby crowning the rim of the birth canal or a ripe, juicy tomato plumply twisting on the vine, Where the Wild Things Are is about to burst forth into the world. It’s like no film we’ve seen before, and we can’t wait to witness how the general moviegoing public reacts to it.
Vice founder Shane Smith went to London this summer to visit Spike as he completed effects work on WTWTA there. Shane was en route to Africa to film for VBS.TV, and he was reeling from the gargantuan doses of malaria medication he’d been taking. Before he met up with Spike, he attended a private viewing of Where the Wild Things Are. Then he rushed straight into Spike’s arms and, overcome with emotion, sobbed awhile. And then the two of them sat in Shane’s hotel room and talked all about Spike’s new movie, life, and love.
