Re: “Wild

Well, it astounds me how you missed the motivation and the character DID say it: she was walking "to make herself clean." Clean to forgive herself of her past and clean to finally grieve for her mother. By taking a solitary walk or hike, don't we all do that? That's what I gain with time alone in the woods - convening with nature and a refresh to my soul.

Also, as a woman, I found the events Cheryl experienced on the trail completely relatable (from encountering potentially dangerous men to the physical burdening of a pack). I also giggled at her novice backpacking errors, which fortunately from the wisdom of fellow Green Mountain Club members, I have managed to mostly avoid.

Yes, you were immature by humming the Dewey Cox theme in your head (a shoddy movie in which she didn't even star nor did the low caliber parodying come close to resembling her character in Walk the Line.) Taking the movie from a joking perspective skewed your ability to see the beauty behind this wonderful movie.

Your review is the joke.
