Tell Them Anything You Want: A Portrait of Maurice Sendak (2009)

Directors: Lance Bangs, Spike Jonze

Composer: ???

Starring: Maurice Sendak, Lance Bangs, Lynn Caponera, Spike Jonze, Catherine Keener

More info: IMDb

Plot: Sendak offers a rare, intimate, and unexpected look at his exceptional life.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Nah.

It's only 39 minutes long but it's Sendak talking non-stop.  He's fun and interesting.  He's got a neat story about the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby.  One thing I learned that surprised me was that he wrote Where the Wild Things Are very early in his career and the story behind it is cool.  The Oscilloscope DVD extras include extra footage and interviews that last as long as the film (a must watch) and trailers for 16 Oscilloscope pictures (but not for this film).
