Geoff McFetridge for “Where The Wild Things Are”

cute

We went and saw Where The Wild Things Are last night, and unlike most movies with that level of hype, I was not disappointed. Visually, it’s a beautiful film, everything you’d expect from Spike Jonze. It does an excellent job at capturing the roller coaster of emotions and feelings that you go through as a child and while it doesn’t deal with overly adult topics, it’s definitely not a kids’ movie. The soundtrack is excellent, and I was also struck by how nicely done the titles were, illustrated by Geoff McFetridge. Simple and childlike, they were a perfect match for the film. I just goes to show that good design doesn’t have to be ornate and over-done to be effective.
