Into The Wild - How To Disappear Completely


Into the Wild is the kind of movie that feels on more than one occasion like walking as a guest into a room for the first time where two or three people seated comfortably and with whom you've never met before instantly greet and connect with you in a way that can't be explained, but somehow enriches the universe and emboldens unconditional love.

Despite being a true story about running away from society and dependence on people I don't think I've ever watched a movie populated by more people I've instantly liked. It's worth watching just to listen to the poetic monologues between separated brother and sister. It's a film as close to the poetry of different landscapes as one could wish to encounter.
