The goddess in the rain

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar,
I love not Man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron,
(from Into the Wild)

Mefisto, I'm not really good at writing stuff about movies since I cant really be objective about them. If I really like em, I gush. If I dont like em, I wont waste my time. But I agree, I thought Into the Wild was a truly great film.

T., I agree! Sean Penn is one guy to really watch out for..I love his spunk and his outrageousness..and the same goes for Byron. Apparently, he had quite a reputation that Lord Byron. :D

Rohith, I had a feeling you'd empathise :)

We sneaked into the Vihar Lake area a few weeks back. The place would have been so beautiful had there not been people like us who'd have sneaked in and left their mark.

Into The Wild is such a great movie. One of those that's probably better than the book!

"I'm going to paraphrase Thoreau here... rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness... give me truth."

And Sean Penn is awesome!! Anyone seen Goodfellas here? :)

leo, the lake is beautiful. Our school used to take us for summer trips there. But its all so different now. Everywhere's so much more crowded.

Nitisha, I havent read that book really, so I cant say. I saw on your blog that you read The Road..now thats one book that was just impossible to make a satisfying movie out of.. And btw, I love pretty much every movie De Niro did back then! Goodfellas totally included!
