Into the Wild

A bit like us

OK, I love to travel to places I don't know to connect with life's companion thrill, Nature (people being the major gift of existence). So I'm probably going to like Sean Penn's Into the Wild, which introduces us to a real-life peripatetic hero, Chris McCandless (Emile Hirsh), not an egomaniac like Werner Herzog's Timothy Treadwell, but just a brainy, 60's type hippy in love with Thoreau and decidedly not enamored of suburban life.

Rocket Science

I'm not telling.

I do think Wes Anderson is a genius from Bottle Rocket to Royal Tenenbaums: He captures loveable eccentrics more consistently than any other director. Jeffrey Blitz and his Rocket Science don't measure up, but they do provide moments of insight into teenage angst, in a decidedly figurative way that saves it from obscurity.

"In a world which furnishes so many employments which are useful, and so many which are amusing, it is our own fault if we ever know what ennui [boredom] is, or if we are ever driven to the miserable resource of gaming, which corrupts our dispositions, and teaches us a habit of hostility against all mankind."
