The film is a powerful and unforgettable character study and often inspires serious debate on the actions of the main character. The courage and conviction he shows is countered with the selfishness of the pain that his actions no doubt caused his parents and sister by disappearing without a trace. But on this journey of self-discovery he learns more about life, himself and the world.
Emile Hirsch’s portrayal (and physical likeness) of Christopher McCandless is astounding. He embraces both the good and bad of the character as well as his wide-eyed innocence and rock-solid convictions. No easy feat to be sure. The soundtrack to the film is simply amazing and the original songs by Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder serve as a heart-wrenching narrative to the plight of McCandless and of the vastness of nature in all of its danger and glory.
Into the Wild offers great video & audio quality with some strong detail and a natural color scheme. Special features include two featurettes (totaling about 40 min) and a theatrical trailer.
With breathtaking scenery, strong attention to detail, fine acting and a beautifully haunting soundtrack, Into the Wild comes recommended. It’s not always an easy journey, but one worth taking.
Based on a true story and narrated with many of Chris' journal entries, the film is an emotional roller coaster; I was torn between admiring his youthful idealism and courage and hating him for the pain he inflicted on his family. The movie feels much like a documentary as it follows Chris hitchhiking and working his way across the country and then surviving, at first, quite well in Alaska.
Emile Hirsch is well-cast as Chris and makes you care about him right from the start. He did all of his demanding stunts himself and even lost 40 pounds to play the ailing Chris. It is a very touching story. Amid the splendor of the wilderness but ultimately alone, Chris finally understood that happiness is only real when it is shared. Highly recommended.

This is a boring movie based on the misguided waste of life of an entitled, plainly ignorant young person. What was Sean Penn thinking?Published 4 months ago by Maddy
While we were on the Alaska cruise, we heard an earful of this movie and the story of Chris McKandless. He is like a local deity in the woods. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Francis Zhou
