      Take me down the path of no one

      Some people are always special. Special experience, special thinking, special way of speaking, special way of expressing, special moral standard, special special. Some people are always special. Start with breathing.

      Seeing the vacant old bus, seeing the rising Lan in the snow-capped mountains, seeing the animals flocking to my eyes, seeing the school city highway and the disappearance of lights, I think of myself, I think of you more, and I think of the past The ideal friend thinks...

      on the sidelines

      and the annoying responsibility
      leading me westward

          "ABSOLUTE FREEDOM", COMPLETE FREEDOM, the kind of freedom we started to imagine when we were kids, unchecked, snatch , possession, abandonment, and destruction are all at one's own will. And then, it wasn't the parents who had absorbed the seductive...

      romance to death

      I don't know if everyone has to go through a certain minute. After this minute, all the happiness seemed to be attached to torture, and at that moment, he fell from a height and fell into an abyss of thousands of bundles. In his time, Chris learned the truth about his parents' love. And the joy of childhood is like a deceit of inferior disguise in the face of the truth.
         That minute was a disaster for little Chirs, and it was indeed a good news for those of us who love to read...

      Happiness only real when shared

      Reminds me of "Into The Wild" today.

      I have watched this film many times, which resonates with me. Like the protagonist Christopher, I also have the same wild heart. I am still young and eager to go on the road. I always want to get rid of this morbid society, immerse myself in the embrace of nature, and communicate with the god of the world with my feelings and my true body and mind.

      I remember someone said: There are only two kinds of people in this world who really have a...

      true stories are not so romantic

      Tonight, I spent more than 2 hours together with ALEX in the movie, along with the ups and downs of wilderness music, I experienced a spiritual journey.
        I have never wandered, just traveled. But I feel so empathetic. I
        have been walking in On the way, I saw many scenery, met many strangers, listened to their stories, developed deep feelings with them, and then left, the next stop, the next stop, kept meeting, and kept leaving, and kept walking. Every unfamiliar...

      At first I thought it was a film on the road like "Etudes". After watching it, I realized that although the walking is beautiful and powerful, I couldn't understand the concept of the male lead. He just doesn't want anything. It was not until I was dying that I wanted to return to the world where people lived, and I wanted to return to the arms of my parents, but I couldn't go back, what a circle. The male protagonist Emile Hirsch is simply a combination of Ewan and Leonardo, but there is still...

      Very hypocritical and unprepared. That is not freedom. When he gave up accepting Leviathan, he also lost shelter. It can be described in the words of Boss Jiang. I can live so long thanks to the good environment, I have the ability to drink the water of the Yangtze River and enjoy swimming by myself. My Son, My Son, What Have Ye...

      Whether to choose to be like Chris or like that hippie couple, that is the question. How to choose between loneliness and companionship. Are you strong enough to take risks, regardless, or even exaggerated, to go incognito as a super wanderer. In fact, as long as you are sober, pure and unrestrained, it may be enough to face everything. The magic of the journey lies in the unknown encounters. The soundtrack is good. I didn't think it was Sean...

      There is no need to become strong, but to feel strong, to measure yourself at least once, to find yourself once in the oldest environment of mankind. God put these things around us, perhaps to change our minds about...

      SeanPenn's self-written and self-directed live-action biography is somewhat similar to "127h" but more exciting. Rather than lv, money, fame, fairness, give me Truth. The male protagonist must be reading Thoreau Byron's brain. Give up Harvard Medical School to be a supertramp. I met many people and things on the road. Is it rebirth/rebellion? Is it worth...

    Behind the scenes gags

    Catherine Hardwick once screened Sean Penn's film "Lord of Dogtown" for him in order to co-operate. One of the leading actors was Emile Husky. Sean Penn remembered the young actor and met him several times. He also asked Husky to go back and read the original book, and finally told him after finishing the script: If you want this role to be yours NS.
    Emile Husky weighed 156 pounds when he got the role. He lost 26 pounds before shooting,...
