I came to this film not knowing anything about it except everybody had told me how great the book was first and how the film was such an accurate retelling, close to capturing the book and what a wonderful encapsulation of “Alex’s” (Christopher’s) trip into the Alaskan wilderness.
That was all I knew about it. Recently I read an article of the best films of the new millennium and “Into the Wild” was listed, so I ordered it on Blu Ray because of the higher resolution and I have become used to watching this format vs dvd.
Watching it was a real eye opener and flashback to my youth of dealing with an abusive rigidly controlling parent and ending up suffering tremendous PTSD which has colored my almost entire adult life. So, I immediately connected with Christopher’s situation. “Gotta get away...” ran through my young life also.
The adventure that Christopher goes on and travels through is truly one of the most beautiful and interesting journey I have perhaps ever seen and it is made even more special by the characters he meets and associates with traveling cross-country...just amazing, enchanting even, or at least I thought so.
He has offers from people he has met to stay there with them and not continue on. But, he is young and he has already planned his odyssey into the Alaskan wilderness to live off the land. So after some rough spots he finally makes it into the far reaches from civilization.
The photography here is simply even more breathtaking that where he has passed through before, and the wildlife, etc is captivating and in some cases terrifying. Christopher is however in this over his head for one person alone to handle. So, things get really tough and food becomes a serious problem ending in an arresting error.
I have now ordered the book to read because I need to gather more knowledge of him and his decision-making ability etc.
I urge you to see this beautiful movie if you have not yet done so as it is memorable and you will come away from it a clear and greater understanding of life lived alone in a wild remote place with nobody to talk to, be advised by or to discuss things and situations with. You will perhaps never forget this true story of Christopher and his escape from his family and friends into the wilds of the Deep Alaskan Wilderness.
Starz had a free weekend so I jumped at the chance to finally watch this movie. I ended up watching it twice. I ordered it right away because there don't seem to be alot of sellers that have it offered as a new movie.
What can I say about this movie and Chris' story? Powerful, truthful, stripped right down to raw human emotion. It reminded me of a cross between Cheryl Strayed's "Wild" and a modern day version of Kerouac's "On the Road".
This movie speaks so much to my soul that I went on to buy the book "Into the Wild" and "The Wild Truth". Can't wait to read them. I will not be visiting Bus 142 as many others have done, but will continue on in my own solo adventures in the urban jungle and exploring the mountains and forests. Here's to you Chris for inspiring others to keep the dream going for you! I get it!

Gesellschaft ist, wo alles menschenleer, Musik im Wellenschlag am ewigen Meer,
die Menschen lieb ich, die Natur noch mehr.` ( Lord Byron )
Traurigzartes Violinenspiel, eine Mutter, die in der Nacht weinend aufschreckt, weil sie ihren Sohn hörte.........
..........da geht er hin, in die Wildnis........Into the Wild............................
" Wenn du hier wieder `rauskommst, ruf mich an. Die Nummer steht in den Stiefeln. ".....sagt der nette Truckfahrer,
der Chris mitnimmt..........
Der Schnee ist tief, der Fluß eisig, doch das Feuer wärmt die Seele. Anfangs dachte ich noch, wie muss man wohl
drauf sein, um sowas zu wagen. Zwei Jahre wandert er durch die Welt,....kein Telefon, kein Pool, keine Haustiere,
keine Zigaretten- um der vergiftenden, verkappten Zivilisation zu entfliehen. Genau.
" Warum brauch' ich ein neues Auto? Macht ihr euch Sorgen um...........was die Nachbarn denken? "
Chris steigert sich in eine Wut hinein,- um letztendlich das Risiko einzugehen, einen unerbittlich einsamen Weg
" Es ist wohl kaum zu bestreiten, dass uns die Vorstellung von einem freien Leben schon lange begeistert..........,
wir verbinden mit diesem Gedanken eine Flucht vor der Geschichte, Unterdrückung, dem Gesetz und vor........ unangenehmen Verpflichtungen.
Absolute Freiheit,.......der Weg dorthin führte schon immer nach Westen.........".
INTO THE WILD oder Das Leben kann grausam sein- eine menschliche Tragödie, die sich in echt so zugetragen hat.
Sean Penn inszeniert sie als überlanges Epos, als Drama über einen Menschen, der Freiheit sucht, lange begleitet
wird auf diesem Weg. Er fängt sowohl Gefühlslage und Begeisterung als auch traurige Momente und berührende Begegnungen ein.
INTO THE WILD,.....diese Reise verlangt dem Zuschauer etwas Geduld ab, bietet dafür aber ganz viel Emotionen.
Chris Mc Candless stammt aus einem wohlhabenden Elternhaus,
träumt aber vom Aussteigen. Er trampt nach Alaska, schlägt sich in der Wildnis durch,
bis er......................wer diese wirkliche Geschichte gar nicht kennt, wird um so gefesselter sein.
Fazit, mein sehr berührtes:
Alles in Allem ist INTO THE WILD ein wuchtig emotionales Ereignis, dass man aber nur spürt,
wenn man sich komplett in die Lage des Hauptcharakters versetzt und den Weltschmerz,
den dieser Film ausdrückt, versteht.
Sean Penn gilt als Extremist, in seinen Schauspielrollen wie in seinen Regiearbeiten. Sein Spielfilm
INTO THE WILD ist eine Feier des Außenseiters und eine Feier Amerikas. In über Einhundertvierzig Minuten
werde ich auf eine Reise mitgenommen, die mir nicht nur die äußerliche Schönheit eines Landes zeigt, sondern
auch einen jungen Mann auf der Suche nach dem Sinn des Lebens. Unterlegt mit toller und passender Musik
ist klar auch der Neben- Cast wie William Hurt und Marcia Gay Harden überzeugend.
INTO THE WILD: Man mag dem Film vielleicht ankreiden, dass Einhundertvierzig Minuten für eine solche Geschichte,
in der eigentlich wenig gesprochen wird und man einem Mann zuschauen soll, der die Natur genießt, ein bisschen
übertrieben sind, ja. Doch tut es auch mal gut, ein bisschen zu sinieren und über das Sein nachzudenken.

The film details the experiences of one Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch) or Alexander Supertramp as he calls himself, as he abandons the path his life has apparently been set upon, and sets out on a voyage of self discovery, relying on his wits in order to survive. When we first see McCandless he has arrived in Alaska on what will be the final part of his journey, and through a series of flashbacks and an ongoing narration by his baffled but loving sister (Jena Malone in a great understated role), we learn of the decisions that brought about this strange choices in his life, and the effect this has on his family.
It is clear very early on in the movie that McCandless has a deep seated resentment for his parents (played with great effect by Marcia Gay Harden and in particular William Hurt) stemming from their essential marital problems that he feels they both took out on their children. Rejecting their consumer driven lifestyle, McCandless graduates from college, and without telling anyone drives his car into the middle of nowhere, where he abandons it and burns what little money he has before setting out on his life changing odyssey. Clearly not wanting to be found, McCandless survive on his wits as well as occasionally working an odd job here and there in order to earn a little money in order to get by. Along the way he encounters a variety of people, including Catherine Keener and Brian Dierker as an ageing hippy couple who take to the likeable McCandless, as well as Vince Vaughn in a great role as a farmer who gives McCandless a part time job, and which the letters that Chris subsequently writes to him detailing his experiences forms much of the films core narrative. However, it is Hal Holbrook's role as the ageing widower who attempts to take Chris under his wing that is the most deeply affecting of all the relationships that McCandless strikes up whilst on the road, and the most heartbreaking when Chris must ultimately reject this kindly but lonely man's offer of permanent friendship in order to remain true to his own goals.
However, it is when McCandless arrives at his ultimate goal, Alaska that things begin to take a turn for the worse. Having eschewed friendships along the way, it is only during his time living in an abandoned school bus that he comes to realise that as it is so memorably put in the film "true happiness comes from a shared experience" and the isolation that he has craved for so long turns to loneliness. McCandless sustains himself for a while during his time in the Alaskan wilderness, but ultimately both the harsh realities of life and his own ill-preparedness begin to take their toll (this is brought home with brutal effect during one scene when McCandless attempts to preserve the meat from a moose he has killed). It would be easy to portray McCandless as a romantic dreamer or a naïve fool, and in the hands of a less mature director this is probably how the film would have gone, but Penn portrays McCandless' journey with an honesty that is refreshing, enjoyable and sad in equal measure. Once again, Sean Penn proves that he is not only a great actor, but he also a great director.

The cinamatography is pretty awesome thoughout and we are given a blu-ray transfer worthy of purchase. Crisp images throughout, a little bit of grain in certain scenes but nothing to panic over. On the audio front, there isn't much call for anything spectacular on the surround front but because of the heavy reliance music to bond the movie, the TrueHD track delivers the goods.
