Cinematography in Into the Wild

A film directed by Sean Penn (2007)

Motivation:I choose the movie Into the Wild for my midterm paper, since I it is one of my mostfavorite movies and since I think that the cinematography is simply exceptional. Thecinematographer Eric Gautier is famous for his use of wide shots, and his capabilityof capturing the beauty of nature. Into the Wild is as a result a movie with some breathtaking nature shots. However I decided not to analyze one of the many famoussequences in the nature, but rather the scene when Christopher Mc Candless aliasAlexanderSupertramp comes back to the city for the first time. This scene is not onethat receives a lot of attention, but in my opinion it is one of the most importantscenes in the movie and I will show in the following how the cinematographycontributes to thisimportance.Plot of the MovieThe movie Into the Wild is based on the book by John Krakauer, which describes thetrue story of Christopher McCandless, who abandoned all his possesions and gave allhis savings to charity, after his graduation from Emor University. Then he started atwo year journey to Alaska, where he wanted to live in the wild.
