Into the wild

Into the Wild (2007) is Sean Penn’s baby. He got the money together to make a film about Chris McCandless who gave everything away, even his Giro, and went to live in the great American wildness and find himself. At almost three hours long he must have got lost a few times, or my eyes kept opening and shutting. I gave up. Even my early training in watching Lassie and Skippy the Bush kangaroo wasn’t enough. I mounted the stairs a broken and tired man. But I knew the ending. Didn’t he know that like Timothy Treadwell cute little grizzlies don’t watch TV or read books; don't just do bear hugs;they just eat you? Nature is called wild for a reason. Note: next film; into the Old Kilpatrick Hills. Take a diary.
