Eddie Vedder - Society - Into the Wild Soundtrack



If you haven't seen this amazing film by Sean Penn, starring a wonderful Emile Hirsch, you must. I cannot stress how much this movie reflected how I have felt so many times about this world, this life, this society, that has so depressed so many, while helping, at the same time, us to survive. I know that I cannot live without others, and that we need each other, but the institutions, the greed, the hypocrisy has infected me. And sometimes, like when I watch movies like this, I wonder if I will ever get well.

Simply well said, Daddydan. It was an amazing film. Hirsch was amazing and I thought Hal Holbrooke's character was astonishing. Pitch perfect in every scene.

And I agree, often I want to leave - get out stop being infected by this world, but there is an optimism that only hopes it will get better...though that optimisim wanes by the minute.
