How is 'Where the Wild Things Are' So Sunsetty?

What I really want to see is how that beak-faced freak is going to look, but until I get that, this new shot from Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are will have to do. What still impresses me most about everything I've seen from this production is that everything looks like was shot around sunset. How can you afford to shoot a whole film given only an hour of shooting light each day? Either Spike Jonze can stop the Earth's rotation (like Superman) or he's been granted access to our government's secret romance research facility, which includes a permanent sunset chamber. If it's the secret government romance lab access one, take me next time, Spike. I really want to sleep on the mile-long satin sheet covered in never-wilting rose petals.
