i just saw into the wild and i have really mixed feelings about it; when i read the book i had a far less sympathetic reading on tragic-wanderluster christopher mccandless than sean penn seems to have; i felt that at the end of the day, chris was confused and angry and really wanted an escape, rather than a sense of nature’s greater power. that said, it was beautifully shot (i want to go back to alaska please), and i LOVED the music. rock me gently, eddie vedder.
