For this analysis I looked at the different clips available on wherethewildthingsare.warnerbrothers.com and noticed that it is common to have the camera angle be from Max's (the main character) perspective and looking directly at him from his level. I think this was used in order to make the viewers seem to be more a part of this movie by becoming almost an equal to Max. This could also be used so that the viewers feel the same things Max does (to an extent) because by seeing things the same way and certain angles allow for certain feelings can give the viewers a 'bond' with the main character. Also, seeing the way Max reacts to things at his eye level allow for the viewers to get a better understanding of things going on in the film.
