    Where the Wild Things Are

    ★★★★

    One of the best screenplays ever written; the way it captured the inner-workings of a child's mind so perfectly, was honestly staggeringly brilliant. It actually seemed to physically know how thin a child's emotions run -- How he or she can literally be laughing one minute, and be crying the next.
    Really and truly, well-done there Mr.Jonze.

    ★★★★½

    This really needed that rewatch.

    Michael Mann's greatest achievement as a director since "Heat", unquestionably.

    Every single second is exhilarating, every single frame oozes a sadly almost forgotten atmosphere.
    A nostalgic tribute to classic Ganster films, as well as a rejuvenation of the great genre.

    Also, Johnny Depp....WTF? Why can't he always be this great?The asshole. His pairing with Cotillard was pure damn perfection.

    Really and truly can't believe how much I loved it this second time.

    In a filmography with film's like these in it, how could anyone still say "Fight Club" is Finchers best film?

    Masterpiece of a script, accompanied by confident direction and top-notch performances from every single cast member.(Yes, even Timberlake)
