intermission: into the wild

Watch the trailer here

I love small, non-Hollywood plots that contain a world; this one got to me in part because I couldn't help but be reminded of my own Alaskan adventure. And more specifically and uneasily, of the urge to challenge oneself to the point, sometimes, of foolishness. . . Based on the true story by Jon Krakauer and sharply directed by Sean Penn, it's about a young man who forsakes society to face and find himself in the wilds of Alaska. Emile Hirsch plays Christopher McCandless with absorption and fire, cheekbones, ribcage and all.

a work in progress

I couldn't resist as it's Valentine's Day. This is very much still in the works, things shifting and morphing. But the feel is there.
