[CRITICAL] INTO THE WILD

“I’m going to Alaska “… This sentence as absurd as radical is the storyline of this upsetting road trip undertaken by the young Christopher McCandless who decides one day to the next everything.

In the Face of the convenience that many young dream, Chris decides to smile but to say no thank you. He just wants to LIVE ! How not to be amazed by this young Harvard graduate who turned his back on the consumer society as we know it to end up in a van rusted to the middle of nowhere…

It is difficult as students today do not identify with this Supertramp, vadrouilleur with a big heart, shaggy hair and backpack firmly hitched. Who has never had the urge to cut this fragile umbilical cord that connects us to this modern society, at once reassuring and stifling ; which of us has never bothered to cut out all his cards and his papers on social security for from breathe away from all these prohibitions and these rational behaviors imposed on us ?

Into the Wild, it is a crisis of adolescence mixed with a choice of life-thought and extreme.

It appears to be difficult to build a critical structured on a movie that teaches us to just refuse any kind of plan, of logic. Let’s say that, even before the lights of the hall go out, we are afraid, because we know that on this screen will appear the images of a true story, directed by Sean Penn never tire of us put a big smack that can only awaken us. Then one understands, a little, a lot sometimes…

And then the music is heard (thank you, Eddie Vedder !) and the angel face of the young Emile Hirsch appears, as if to reassure us… And this is a party for two and a half hours of a great show, or the wheat fields, the communities, the hippies, the mountains of Alaska and u.s. roads without end, and are interspersed with housing for the homeless in the streets of …, the excitement of Harvard and the ceaseless shouting of the parents. The frame is piecemeal : a little of before, a lot of during, and sometimes now… It is evolving like the thread of a book, chapter by chapter, except that these marks are those of life. The voice of the young sister of the hero guides us and we quell all this long trip to be risky, as the quotations from favorite authors Chris who are there to remind us how the culture is of primary importance if one wants to be able to think for ourselves without letting ourselves fall asleep by the company. The camera slows down, sometimes stops, to let us wonder in front of so much beauty blank of any civilization…

It happens even at seeing a beautiful apple, the young Supertramp pays the pellet childish send us a gaze camera, as if to remind us that we as spectators, can live our life as is, instead of just the dream through his journey with him…

“After 2h27 of a show, fierce and sublime, Into the Wild is one of the few current movies to leave us taped to the back of our chair in velvet until the end of the credits. “

The close-ups on the faces of our heroes (this is the case) allow us to witness its physical changes, as if the director wanted to remind us that there is nothing without nothing…

Then, without warning, we find ourselves at the top of a mountain with a panoramic 360-degrees to give the vertigo, and we understand why this little guy of 22 years has seen fit to burn the last of his tickets… Because compared to these expanses, colourful, intoxicating, transcendent, even the most skeptical cannot help but to bow. So yes, we can say that in the end, he is alone, and that it was not worth the trouble, because as he himself says, the happiness is only real when it is shared… maybe… But then we think back to these colorful characters encountered throughout the journey, this descent in the canoe, which, without brave the forbidden, would not have been possible twelve years later, these nights dotted with stars of the past to breathe nothing but pure air…

It doesn’t take much to be on : that Mr. Penn has won his bet, because it has never had much desire to believe in his dreams, as absurd as they are ; want to take risks to live his own life ; on that solitude can be a necessary passage to each of us to determine the person that we are and that we want to become…

Naivety, madness, narcissism, excitement, or rebellion… or maybe all at once…

Still, after 2h27 of a show, fierce and sublime, Into the Wild is one of the few current movies to leave us taped to the back of our chair in velvet until the end of the credits. One is blown, exhausted, exalted, and above all, without voice… And then you’re afraid ! Because we know that outside, cars are honking, people coming out of the Mcdonalds will take this opportunity to smoke a cigarette and go home to dream of travel in front of Thalassa. And yes, one is afraid, because Sean Penn just to give us a gift, a great life lesson, that he will now have to take a smart…

So thank you Mr. Penn for your wonderful film, thank you Supertramp give us the desire to make our wildest dreams, and once again, thanks to the movies we open our eyes, heart, and soul.
