There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;There is a rapture on the lonely shore; There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but Nature more... - Lord Byron
There are so many things I could say about the movie..so many issues that I could delve into...it really doesn't need in depth discussion though, it just needs to be watched.
I watched it with a friend of mine the first time round and he kept saying ''Why the f*ck would anyone do THAT!?' And I defended Christopher all the way....I still do, but I really agree with what he wrote in his book during his last days/hours (?) on the magic bus:
Christopher McCandless: [written into book] Happiness only real when shared.
Oh...and the soundtrack. All I need to say is.....Eddie Vedder
I'm all like......*SOB*
