Lebih kurang bulan lepas aku ada letak gambar Christopher McCandless sebagai cover photo (facebook). Disebabkan ada beberapa orang komen dan di antara mereka pula ada yang tahu kisah Christopher McCandless, jadi aku ingat mahu kongsi antara dialog filem Into the Wild (2007) yang aku suka.
Ron Franz: Alaska!? Son, what the hell are you running from?
Christopher McCandless: [climbing a hill] You know, I can ask you the same question! Except I already know the answer!
Ron Franz: You do, do you?
Christopher McCandless: I do, Mr. Franz! You got to get back out in the world! Get out of that lonely house, that little workshop of yours. Get back out on the road! Really! You're going to live a long time Ron! You should make a radical change in your lifestyle! I mean, the core of man's spirit comes from new experiences. And there you are, stubborn old man, sitting on your butt!
Ron Franz: Sitting on my butt?
Christopher McCandless: Yeah.
Ron Franz: Ha! I'll show you sitting on my butt!
[gets up and follows Chris up the hill]
Ron Franz: I'm gonna miss you when you go.
Christopher McCandless: I'll miss you, too, Ron. But you're wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from human relationships. God's placed it all around us. It's in everything. It's in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at those things.
Ron Franz: Yeah, I'm gonna take stock of that. No, I am. I am. But I wanted to tell you something. From the bits and pieces I put together, you know, from what you told me about your family, your mother and your dad. And I know you've got your problems with the church too. But there's some kind of bigger thing we can all appreciate, and it sounds like you don't mind calling it God. But when you forgive, you love. And when you love, God's light shines on you.
[the sunlight begins to shine over them]
Christopher McCandless: [laughs] Holy shit!
Ron Franz: I told you about that language.
