Besides that, I'm becoming a big Emile Hirsh fan. He was great in Lords of Dogtown. I thought he did well in Alpha Dog too. This role, however, was special. Especially towards the end of the show. A very believable performance from an up and comer.

I highly recommend this flick.

John Krakauer IS the ****znik. I met him at Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder back in the 1990's. I LOVE INTO THE WILD. Into Thin Air is also an incredible book, and I highly recommend it too!
