What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Michael Phillips The film gets under your skin.
Peter Feldman Into the Wild is something of an endurance test, but with a bit of patience the viewer will find some rich rewards along the way.
Stella Papamichael Playing the lead, Emile Hirsch captures all of the arrogance, integrity, naiveté and charm of this complex, troubled young man.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The movie is so good partly because it means so much, I think, to its writer-director.
Jason Anderson Thanks to Penn's affectionate yet clear-eyed tribute, Alexander Supertramp's story will touch more lives, too.
James Berardinelli nto the Wild is a long motion picture, clocking in at nearly 150 minutes. But the strength and breadth of its material earns it the extended running time. It's about many things, and makes pointed comments about the ridiculousness of a society where bureaucracy and the rat race have become so cumbersome that they crush the pleasure out of living.
Peter Travers Unmissable and unforgettable.
Sean Penn has found the movie he had to make.
Tomatometer An accessible and poignant character study.
