Max’s Story

Kitsune Noir points out a cute little clip put together by some fans of Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are. The video illustrates, in clever charm, the story that Max tells his mother near the beginning of the movie about vampires and buildings.

I remember thinking at the time that it was such a smart way Spike and Dave (Eggers, who co-wrote the screenplay) to simultaneously introduce us to Max’s imagination and help us begin to tap into our own memories of childhood adventures and stories. This clip, directed by Sebastian Baptista & Nico Casavecchia, pays wonderful respect to Max’s tale and is filled with the same imaginative spirit.
