Based on the true story of Christopher McCandless, an Emory graduate who left his privileged life for an ill-fated journey into the Alaskan wilderness. Along the way, he encounters a myriad of colorful characters from the fringes of society who shape his understanding of life.

~*~ white people existentialism ~*~ Very boring, privileged character. His idealism and ideas are often contradictory. Like, having a disdain for college education while basing all your ideas off authors that define that milieu. The photography and editing were very sloppy, save for the occasional beautiful nature shot. If it weren't for the great performances by some secondary characters this would be forgettable.
great film..nice shots here n there..there r two things I might conclude from this movie: 1. ironically, "happiness is only real when shared"; and 2. next time if anybody ever write a book about edible&inedible plants, they should separate it in 2 different sections/chapters, cause if not, it might actually leads to someones death..; overall this movie is moving& touching, but not my cup of tea..
Re-watched this beauty the other day and it continues to amaze me. Turn off the lights, plug in your set of headphones and enjoy the ride of Christopher McCandless. Eventually you'll fall into a pit of emotions. One of the rare cases where the movie is better than the book.
I love this movie! It grabs you the way not much movies can. I want to go into the wild, away from all this banal relationships and the evil of society! It is just super enjoyable and inspiring. And don't let me start with the soundtrack...
