INTO THE WILD Collector's Edition
DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 148 minutes, two featurettes, theatrical trailer
VIDEO: 2.35:1
AUDIO: English, French, Spanish 5.1, English 2.0 Dolby Surround
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

STUDIO: Paramount Vantage/ River Road Entertainment
RELEASE DATE: 3-4-2008

INTO THE WILD is a moving journey. The cinematography is breathtaking. Sean Penn is able to transport you into what Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch) felt in his last two years of life. Christopher shed his life and became Alesander Supertramp. He had many adventures and interacted with people. As Alex, Christopher was looking to find himself and what life should be for him. INTO THE WILD is the type of film that does stick with you despite how it ends. It makes me want to see a second season episode (Walkabout) of MILLENNIUM again which was inspired in part by the book in a small way. Also the film does make you wonder about how we live our lives and how did the fmaily of Christopher McCandless affected him.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Other than previews, no extras are on disc 1. An audio commentary would have been nice.

The two featurettes and original theatrical trailer could have fit on disc 1. Their total length justifies a one disc special edition and not a two disc Collector's Edition.

INTO THE WILD: THE STORY, THE CHARACTERS- how Jon Krakauker came across the story of Christopher McCandless and wrote the book, Sean Penn's journey to get the film made, and the casting of the film.
INTO THE WILD: THE EXPERIENCE- A look at the making of the film (they used the real locations Christopher went to and some of the people he met), production design, the director of photography Sean pcicked, and the music.

Also the original theatrical trailer is included.

FINAL ANALYSIS: INTO THE WILD is a moving film. The extras should have fit on one disc instead of being on disc 2.
