Into the Wild
Into the heart. Into the soul.
The true story of top student and athlete, Christopher McCandless, who after graduating from Emory University in 1992, abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness.
I know several people whose opinions I respect that have loved this film and even rate it among their favourites, but having read the book and now having seen the movie I’m still at the same conclusion, that Chris McCandless was at times an insufferable prick who believed he was some divine combination of Thoreau and Jack London. He didn’t deserve to die for this stupidity (many his age think they're indestructible) but he doesn’t deserve to be mythologised either. Sean Penn’s script and direction shows how little of an actual story there is here, as he ends up relying on montages of scenery set to music and voiceover to fill space. (The book had a similar problem - there’s…
I cannot possibly BEGIN to describe my feelings towards this story, or perhaps the whole concept of what McCandless did. After watching the movie, I could not think of anything but a strange longing to do what he did, and it just kept going. I still feel that way, even now, as I think of it. Later, I read the book twice, and did a lot of research about McCandless, and I became more and more inspired. This is not just a movie - it is a wonder of creation. I have so much more to say, but I'll just stop here - watch the movie even if you are not inspired by what McCandless did - it is a beautiful movie in many ways.
Dirk van Eck is a geography student who does not like, probably hates, to travel. But he loves Into the Wild! With an abstract that has ‘doomed to fail’ written all over it, the movie, and its leading actor Emile Hirsch, the movie surprises beyond imagination by actually emotionally engaging its viewer. Two and a half hours long, and thus deliberately aiming to ‘be’ epic, Into the Wild leads one through a series of bittersweet, nervous, whimsical, curious, risky, banal and passionate moments between different people, sometimes mere strangers, or just between the protagonist and his surroundings. It is a film that feels much more genuine than any comparable alternative, mainly because of director Sean Penn’s - who truly outdoes…
My God. The concept, the look at life, the songs, the lines in the songs,the soothing music , the dialogues, the edifying quotes, the characters and the picturesque nature shown in this film make it more than a film. It makes this, the ULTIMATE PHILOSOPHICAL EXPERIENCE. Everything is so beautiful and when Emile Hirsch sheds tears in the last scene, you cannot control breaking down.
No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild.
Into the Wild is based on the true story of a man searching for the ultimate freedom; Chris McCandless should be an inspiration to all of us, as he was brave enough to get away from this growing consumerist society, and live in the wild.
Stories about men running away from society have always fascinated me, because I myself think about that a lot of times. There's a lot of pressure, imposed by parents, teachers, friends, magazines, advertising, in order to have the best clothes, the best car, the best phone... but, as McCandless said, these are just things.…
To give up everything, family, friends, possessions, money, structure, safety, is extremely brave. It may also be rife with hubris. Sean Penn's "Into the Wild," based on Jon Krakauer's retelling of the life and adventures of Christopher McCandless, examines those dual ideas, casting McCandless as an American wanderer as courageous as he is foolhardy.
In nonlinear bursts of storytelling, Penn's film follows McCandless from his college graduation to his exploration of personal and geographic frontiers. Turning his back on what is expected of him, McCandless moves west with little more than the clothes in his backpack. Eventually finding himself in Alaska, McCAndless finds the absolute freedom for which he searched and comes to the realization of that freedom's cost.
Hmm it didn't pack the same inspirational punch at the first rewatch, partly for the fact of learning that this potrayal of McCandless might not be entirely accurate, he was apparantly more of an idiot and self absorbed guy in real life. I still feel like going on a self discovering trip like this myself though.
Se botar uns dreads no cara você tem um perfeito retrato de tudo que está errado com a galerx de humanxs.
Na Natureza Selvagem é um filme baseado no livro de Jon Krakauer que trata da curta vida de Christopher McCandless ou como autodenominou-se, nos últimos anos de sua existência, Alexander Supertramp.
Após terminar a faculdade Christopher toma a decisão de ir para o Alasca, ele já havia feito algo similar em uma de suas férias de verão, cruzando os Estados Unidos com seu carro e como nunca teve um telefone a falta de notícias suas a princípio foi considerada por sua família como algo natural. Por conseguinte acompanhamos sua jornada numa narrativa não-linear, indo e voltando no tempo através de flashbacks. Conhecemos todas as pessoas com que cruzou na estrada, aprendemos sobre seu passado, mas não é de…
Immer wieder schön.
TÄNK ATT FÅ BO UTE I SKOGEN OCH BARA SLIPPA DET KAPITALISTISKA, FACEBOOKSTIRRANDE SAMHÄLLET(VARFÖR MÅSTE MAN JOBBA DET E JU INTE KUL)???? typ
det är svårt att skilja på huvedpersonen och filmens sensmoral, och jag brukar inte ha så svårt att sära på de två sidorna av en film
WHAT A FUCKING DISAPPOINTMENT
Er wringt iets aan deze film. Ik kan er mijn vinger niet opleggen, maar iets werkt gewoon niet. Is het de duizend-en-een stijlen die ze uitproberen? Of misschien de bij momenten tenenkrommende montage?
Of het verschrikkelijke heen en weer cutten met de verschrikkelijke tussentitels, of dan toch die fake 90-ies stijl die ze willen aannemen?
Misschien is het gewoon het pseudo-filosofisch gepraat van een twintigjarig gastje zonder enige levenservaring?
Of gewoon die country-soundtrack terwijl die stijl totaal niet bij de film past (sorry Eddie, wel nog veel hartjes voor jou)?
Of misschien gewoon het feit dat de voice-over eerst die kerel zelf is en dan plots zijn zus (die nog eens wat extra filosofisch gaat wauwelen)?…
when Ron cried, i cried.
"Happiness Is Only Real When Shared"
This movie told me so many things in a moment that I needed listen.
It's 5am in the morning as I finished this film, and all I got to say is nothing but question "Why book adaptations always have this great sense of detail, and can immerse you into their world?".
Into The Wild is also rich with quotes from different amazing adventure books, and a soundtrack composed essentially of Eddie Vedder works. The cinematography wasn't something unique, but noting this film came out in 2007, it was normal that storytelling was way important than just directorial expertise..
Into The Wild is a beautiful nature call, along with it's dramatisation of the real life story of Christopher McCandless, a top student who went off on his great adventure to Alaska, and his several encounters with people that made an impact on his trip. really loved it.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
