I haven't seen the film Into The Wild but the soundtrack is getting a lot of play. Personally I'm not into folk music but I love Ed's voice...so I'll probably buy it and add it to the 12 gigs of PJ I already have on my hard drive.

Sean Penn is a genuinely concerned person. This faithful film adaptation of the Krakauer novel will be one of the very best motion pictures of the year.

It briefly follows the stages on life's way of a character from being a juvenile blanket anti-authoritarian to formulating a complex adult understanding of life...

The movie's greatest triumph is its depiction of Chris' bond with an 82-year-old leather worker, Ron Franz (Hal Holbrook). Holbrook, who's 82 himself, matches Hirsch's urgency without showing a bead of sweat. Six decades of acting have brought Holbrook a peerless mastery of limpid thought and emotion.

...the tragedy being that this understanding comes too late.

Good news. I wasn't aware of a movie. I've read the book twice.
It has been a source of yearning for me. Being youthful and enjoying a good, true account of a real adventure as a source for inspiration to travel, such books can make one aware of such openess - gaping enough, to, as we see, sallow you whole.
