An Epic journey grappling with the meaning of life, and the ever unanswered quest of true happiness with branched stories and a tragic end.
"Into the wild", is one of Sean Penn's most ambitious projects, and adapts Jon Krakauer's novel of the same name with concrete conviction.
It serves up an almost utopian journey laced with charismatic dread.
And every ounce of the vast talent on Sean's hands is juiced, as the film boasts of stupefying performances by Vince Vaughn, Kirsten Stewart, Hal Holbrook and of course Emile Hirsch.
Every shot is a masterclass, as if the measured note of an epiphany, this movie is deep, beautiful, tragic, and occasionally funny and has the famed American wilderness as an ex situ protagonist, paired with the stellar story telling skills of Penn.
The result is a movie which is thought-provoking, and beautifully tragic.
the story of a 20-year-old college graduate who cashes in his law school fund and, in the words of Mark Twain, lights out for the territory.
He drives west until he can drive no farther, and then north into the Alaskan wilderness.
He keeps journals in which he sees himself in the third person as a heroic loner, renouncing civilization, returning to the embrace of nature.
He sees himself not as homeless, but as a man freed from homes.
Emile Hirsch plays him in a hypnotic performance, turning skeletal, his eyes sinking into his skull while they still burn with zeal. It is great acting, and more than acting. .
