Impressions of "Wild": ? 00:01:00 ? Already tired of her whining. ? 00:09:00 ? Wondered aloud: "Is anyone really that stupid???" ? 00:19:00 ? Dawns on her that nighttime is dark. Doesn't bode well. ? 00:20:47 ? She has the first of certainly many temper tantrums because she failed to familiarize herself with her own equipment before she started. ? 00:22:00 ? Goes out on a remote trail for solitude and then complains about the lack of people. ? 00:23:17 ? Quits already by catching a ride back to civilization for a meal and a shower (8 days?) ? 00:35:26 ? What the fxxx was the whistle supposed to accomplish??? Now I know that some people really are that stupid (caterpillar). God, I'm hoping against hope for Darwin's revenge. ? 01:00:24 ? She's acting like a shipwreck survivor, on a deliberately chosen solitary hike. WTF? ? 01:02:11 ? Finally, a glimmer of hope ? overt misanthropy! ? 01:43:00 ? A genuinely funny moment ? song in the head. ? 01:50:37 ? What?!? No idea what she was mumbling about at the big climax on the bridge. In the end, she lives. Unbelievable. Should have just Googled "Pacific Crest Trail" -- more useful, less painful, much faster.

I am really surprised at all of the negative reviews here. But then I remember, this is IMDb. Enough said there. I enjoyed this movie very much. I don't think it was anything more than the story of one woman trying to find a way to move forward. This movie is not a political statement about feminism. This is ONE woman's story of regret, healing, and ultimately about forgiving herself so that she could move forward. Is this movie boring? Only if you need CGI and superheroes to call it "exciting." Do people do really adventurous things like taking off alone on a thousand mile trek on foot? Yeah, they do. And most of them actually survive. People have been surviving for thousands of years by striking out on their own without any previous experience or "training." Many years ago I did something very similar to what this woman did in the Sierra Nevadas. Looking back now I know I must have been crazy to do something so unplanned. But it was something I felt I had to do and was also stemmed from a tragic loss. I thought Reese was very believable in this role. The constant flashbacks that seemed to bother all the other reviewers did not bother me in the least. The flashbacks were the unfolding of her life taken in little pieces and in sync with the memories that were ignited within her on her journey. So contrary to the other reviewers, I liked this movie! The soundtrack was right on target with what was happening in each scene. The scenery was stunning, but of course it would be if you've ever been in the area. On foot. I happily gave this movie a rating of 7 out of 10.
It's amazing how much hate and contempt this movie and the book it was adapted from has created on IMDb. I had the pleasure of seeing this at the Fleur Cinema in Des Moines prior to reading about the movie on IMDb. For some reason I connected immediately with Reese Witherspoon's portrayal of Cheryl Strayed...and through that performance felt a kinship with Ms. Strayed. Odd, as I assume she is someone I will never have the chance to meet in person. Perhaps it was associating with an underdog who perseveres. The cinematography captured me as I was lucky to have spent summers in the area around the PCT and was stationed nearby as well in my early twenties. I never imagined myself actually hiking the entire trail John Muir style. I could drive from trail to trail in my trusty automobile with a wallet full of Navy pay and drive back to civilization and sleep on a nice safe spongy Navy bunk. The film as a whole: the combination of directing, filming, acting, brought to me just how difficult it would be to attempt to hike the majority of the PCT. Just the courage to begin the journey was awe inspiring to me. I personally still can't believe Ms. Strayed actually did this, to me it's a monumental achievement...something I'd be proud of my entire life. That she undertook this journey after suffering so many tragedies and personal misfortunes in her life is even more impressive in my opinion. If you view the forum on here you'll encounter many people who don't understand why this film or book were ever created. Obviously these people have absolutely no clue what it takes to undergo such a mission, or journey, or life experience...whatever you choose to call it. To me, the end of the film, where Ms. Strayed comes out on the other side and experiences with what I believe is pure joy, relief, and peace is the reason for the film to be made. I don't really care what other people feel, it's Ms. Strayed's story...I just hope she was as pleased with the film and Ms. Witherspoon's portrayal as I was. I may be an old dude, but I hope to one day walk the same trail with friends...albeit on a slower time frame. Just so I can see and experience what she did, and find out about myself some of what she came to realize at the end.
