Spike Jonze goes Wild

With Where The Wild Things Are opening to a pretty ace $32.5million this weekend Stateside, it’s a good time to dip into director Spike Jonze’s even wilder side.

Thank the internet then for the short film he’s made with Kanye West – him of good hip hop and bad awards show etiquette fame.

Called We Were Once A Fairytale, it’s a ten-minute, frankly bizarre yet wholly captivating trawl through a night gone drunk for West at a fancy club.

His song ‘See You In My Nightmares’ plays on the PA and as he obnoxiously sings along, generally being a prat, even hangers on start falling away.

Then he has a bit of sex, cuts himself open, bleeds petals and has a face-to-face with a strange puppet creature.
