Nice for Fans of McCandless
17 September 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Call of the Wild (2007)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice documentary from Ron Lamothe has him tracing the final footsteps of Chris McCandless, the twenty-something man who pretty much left all his possession behind and went on a tour of America, which ended up in Alaska where he died of starvation inside a lonely bus. McCandless has become a folk hero to many and this documentary also takes a look at that side of things. Most people are going to know this story from the feature INTO THE WILD by Sean Penn. It's funny because throughout this documentary Lamothe runs into that film crew a couple times and we even get a cameo appearance by Penn. I think some of the weakest moments here were the conspiracy theories about why certain people refused to talk about the man for this film. Apparently most had signed contracts with the film crew to where they couldn't talk so this made them unavailable here. For the most part I thought this was a well meaning film as we see McCandless' childhood home, the place he left his car and went out on his own and of course his death place. Fans of his should really enjoy this film for simply allowing them to see the real places. The film was obviously done with an extremely low budget, which is obvious by the look but this doesn't take away anything.
