It feels a bit strange to watch a movie with an ending that you know about. Yes, there are movies about history and about celebrities, but this isn’t one of them. Into the Wild is a movie about a young man who leaves home after college and wanders around the country, finally deciding to go to the Alaska wilderness.
It’s an oddly compelling movie which I watched like a sociopath waiting for him to die. Of course, Amber cried a lot.
The one thing I wasn’t able to really understand was why he left home and life as a middle class person. It was clear that his relationship with his parents wasn’t good, but explaining that was the movie’s weakest point.
I rate the movie 8/10.
