~*~ 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.
Such a good movie, I like the story because was well supported until the end. It was very inspirational for me. Actually Emile Hirsch is one of my favorite young actors, good performance. Love this movie, five stars.
