Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away. Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild. Admitting an interest that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the dries and desires that propelled McCandless.
Digging deeply, he takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons. He is said to have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force.
The Movie, by Sean Penn. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an enduring symbol for countless people.
Along the way, he encountered a series of colorful characters at the very edges of American society who shaped his understanding of life and whose lives he, in turn, changed. In the end, he tested himself by heading alone into the wilds of the great North, where everything he had seen and learned and felt came to a head in ways he never could have expected. The Soundtrack, by Eddie Vedder. The vocalist remains one of the most passionate and engaging frontmen in rock.
In , Vedder was asked by friend Sean Penn to contribute music for his fourth feature-film Into the Wild about the young life of Christopher McCandless and his journey into the Alaskan wilderness. The track also includes Vedder playing some jangly-like guitar riffs and melodies that is also accompanied by acoustic backgrounds.
No Ceiling is a slower, folk-driven song accompanied mostly by a banjo and a soft, slide guitar in the background. Far Behind is a mid-tempo rocker that fans of Pearl Jam will definitely familiarize themselves with as the two-minute track is a nice accompanying track for a good road song.
And no, this is not a cover of the song by fellow Seattle band Candlebox. In the review, Fullerton states that "due to Vedder's interest in all things anti-corporate, McCandless' renouncement of materialism is celebrated rather than the fact that he eventually died. Both "Hard Sun" and " Guaranteed " had accompanying music videos. Vedder was nominated for a Golden Globe for his contributions to the film's original score in All tracks are written by Eddie Vedder except where noted.
