What are people saying?

  • Igor Ramos's rating of the film Wild

    It makes you want to do that sort of journey, take the time-off and just stay with yourself for a couple of days, even if your life is not as troubled as Cheryl's. It's a very nice film: it hardly takes any big risks, but the editing, colouring, acting and music by Simon & Garfunkel take it to the next level. I found Mia Wasikowska's journey across the the Australian desert in "Tracks" to be even better.

  • Spoiler's rating of the film Wild

    Uma estrada de erros e milagres, uma trilha agradável, uma penitencia envolvente, facilmente escrita por Nick Hornby, o “queridinho da América”, e aqui, noutro trabalho de desconstrução/reconstrução. Uma fluidez estética que remonta, claro, um filme interior, tantos conceitos, valores e sentimentos embutidos, mas literalmente a natureza como um todo. Selvagem? Caótica? Universal? Naturalmente.

  • anarresti's rating of the film Wild

    It is quite amazing the amount of self-explanatory noise that is put in every 30 second sequence. Almost an exact oposite to Terrence Mallick's sense of balanced silence eloquence. Little room is left for anything contemplative. This could be a good companion for Into The Wild, in its ambitious wish to capture something feminine and redemptive. But even thoughts are made out loud. As if everything needs a manual.

  • Joe Hackman's rating of the film Wild

    Saw this early in LA. When the credits were rolling, I lamented the CGI fox, but in the Q&A after Vallée said that it was a real fox and a pain in the ass to use on camera. So maybe it's real? Besides that, the movie is good. It hinges on the lead performance, and Witherspoon has never been this dynamic. Paired with some stunning scenery and choice humour, Wild does not disappoint.

  • Eleanor Abernathy's rating of the film Wild

    this isn't anywhere near as good as wendy and lucy but a much better tale than into the wild. maybe it's my need to see women on the screen but i highly recommend this.

  • Daniel Roque's rating of the film Wild

    The view is amazing, but I felt more drama from Reese Witherspoon's journey to become a legally blonde than to climb the Pacific Crest Trail.

  • Jye Sherwell's rating of the film Wild

    I guess it's easy to compare this to "Into the Wild", but the fact is they're actually not similar; which is a shame because "Wild" is no where near as satisfying as "Into the Wild". I admire some of what this film does, but then it just ends without a big enough payoff in my opinion. The most I've liked Witherspoon though.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Wild

    FNC '14 Reese Witherspoon gives an incredible performance here in the tale of Cheryl Strayer a woman who walked the Pacific Trail for 1100 miles to battle her inner demons and cleanse her soul. A star turn certainly but Reese delivers. The film pales besides 'Into the Wild' and the recent 'Tracks' which had similar themes but does connect with the audience. Minus the fox and 'red river valley' this would be 5 stars
