Into the Wild by Sean Penn( visu )
71 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,900 libraries worldwide
Christopher McCandless a 22 ans, de brillants diplômes et une vie qui semble déjà toute tracée. Animé par une soif dabsolu et de liberté sans limite, il plaque tout pour partir à laventure à la découverte des USA. On louera nécessairement la qualité de la photo, sublime, mettant en valeur chaque instant de la traversée de divers Etats, saisissant aussi bien la descente du Colorado, le retour depuis le Mexique, que les étendues enneigées de l'Alaska, dernière étape d'un récit compté en de multiples flash backs, parfois accompagnés de bribes de commentaires faits par une soeur qui sait l'urgence ressentie par son frère à vivre autrement. Sean Penn tire au passage un état des lieux du pays, forcément politique. Des hippies désabusés aux immigrés mexicains, au besoin d'argent permanent, il met son idéaliste héros face à l'aliénation d'un peuple, mais aussi à une certaine réalité. Un road-movie initiatique porté par une photographie somptueuse
