Wow here is a director who really understands how to make movies for children and has a proper undertanding of issues that concern parents.
Jonze: What do you say to parents who think the Wild Things film may be too scary?
Sendak: I would tell them to go to hell. That’s a question I will not tolerate.
Jonze: Because kids can handle it?
Sendak: If they can’t handle it, go home. Or wet your pants. Do whatever you like. But it’s not a question that can be answered. [reference]
So surprised that Pixar hasn’t hired him yet.
