I am guessing I'll be posting about this movie a lot over the next few months.
I have always been sad that Sike Jonez never made Harold and The Purple Crayon. And have been borderline furious that WtWTA has been shelved for more than a year. I have mixed feelings about Dave Eggers but I actually think he is well-suited as a co-writer on this.
I'm still holding my breath that this won't be wantered down. The visuals are so wonderful and the rumors are that it was shelved in part for being too dark an dthat Max wasn't likable enough (which he shouldn't be).
