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. So we have to watch this movie, and try not only to know the full story but also to understand his story. The movie did a good job on the former, but fell a little short on the latter. Still a good movie to watch, more thought provoking than entertaining, but that was OK with us.

This is a powerful story about a young man's attempt to reconnect with nature and to find himself in the process. Both the acting and the directing are excellent, and involve the viewer in a searching experience, raising some fundamental existential questions. That the film is based on the tragic real-life experience of a young man makes it profoundly moving. This film is all the more important at a time when we realize that we have devastated the world of nature and are searching for a way to restore our relationship with nature without which we cannot survive long into the future.

I read the book first and loved it. I was excited and afraid to see this film, as I was worried it'd wreck the jewel of a story. Happily, it was very close to the book. A few minor deviations actually made for a better film than if they had been 100% true to the book. Also, since the publication of the book and the production of this film, there has been great debate, and some revelation, about the main character's cause of death.

Spoiler Alert!!!

Told in multi-level flashbacks about a recent college graduate who goes on a Walkabout due to his apparent anger at his parents due to a difficult childhood. He eventually goes to Alaska where much to his surprise his education has not prepared him to survive on his own in the wilderness. Despite having access to water he is unable to survive. Sad and pathetic. Includes swearing and bare skin in an unsuccessful effort to make this try to be important. Some beautiful National Geographic-type scenery. Famous actors appear and do fine jobs all, the story is just lame. Avoid.

This is an excellent film, the cinematography is beautiful, the story-telling compelling, and it is based on an equally excellent book. Emile Hirsch is pitch perfect as young Christopher McCandless, a suburban kid who thinks he can go "into the wild" and make it his own. Hirsch's acting is reserved but nuanced. His gestures are spare but speak volumes. And then there's the scenery. From the Sea of Cortez to the Grand Canyon to the Denali wilderness, it's breathtaking. This is a movie that engrosses you from start to finish.

But lordy, that Mccandless kid was a sorry piece of work. The film does not portray the boy as a hero, but neither does it delve into the selfishness of this naive young man. Many reviewers find much to admire about him him as a free spirit and 'idealist.' Idealist my big toe.

What is idealistic about willful ignorance and a sense of entitlement? The kid goes into one of the most challenging and threatening environments on the planet without having clue one about what he's getting into, without adequate supplies and without a map. Idealism is best saved for politics and philosophy. In the wild, you need a willingness to learn. McCandless was so used to his family providing a safety net, it never occured to him that Nature would not bow to his needs as well. The movie, by the way, does hint that his parents are bad people because they offer the boy a new car when he graduates from high school and had the foresight to start a college fund for him. We should all suffer such abuse.

Chris McCandless certainly wanted people to think he was a selfless idealist, with his grandious handing over of his parent's money...not a cent of which he earned himself...to Oxfam. Plenty more where that came from, eh.

Penn does a lovingly beautiful job in retelling Chris' story. The research by both author and film maker must have been difficult. Superb casting. But don't misunderstand our 'hero'. Hubris has spoiled many. Chris was certainly an angry, self-centered fellow, and hurt, but what good did his journey do? (Perhaps as another reminder for us.) It is only when he is facing death that his vision is clear. Is this what Tolstoy and other writers who Chris admired meant? He was a rebel, but what was his cause? Still, we certainly feel for him, and those lives he touched.

By Kona TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 26 2009
Format: DVD
When Chris McCandless (Emile Hirsch) graduated from college, he had one goal in life - to finally break away from his unhappy family and the constraints of society in general and live off the land in Alaska. The episodic film flashes back and forth between Chris' adventures in Alaska and the months leading up to it, focusing on the people who befriended him - including an aging hippie couple and a lonely, old man (well-played by the venerable Hal Holbrook).

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.
