Sendak fans must see
23 May 2018 | by Gunner-AhlbergSee all my reviews

In 2003, Jonze and his frequent collaborator Lance Bangs began taping a series of interviews with the well over 80 years old Sendak at his home, listening (and sometimes prodding) as Sendak recalled his boyhood, his early career, the phenomena and controversies of "Wild Things" and "In The Night Kitchen", and what it was like to live as a gay man at a time when going public with his sexuality might've ended his career. Sendak is a natural performer in front of the camera, and a man of contradictions. This film is really insightful. If you like Mr. Sendak's work, you will truly enjoy this doc.
