+ high-res version

Watched: August 17

My least favourite Spike Jonze movie to date; I would probably feel differently if the source material had been a childhood staple in the UK, as it has been for many decades in the US, but alas here we are. Still, I appreciate the noble attempts made by the film in terms of exploring issues surrounding childhood anger, the excellent voice performance by James Gandolfini, and the wonky mix of live action and monster effects, even if I don’t love any of it.
