Ok, let me tell you to #checkthismovieout and something you shouldn’t do.
- Don’t be an Israeli and travel to the Amazon rainforest.
- Don’t listen to a stranger who tries to convince you to visit an Indian village in an uncharted area of the rainforest.
- Don’t go unless you like the prospect of almost killing yourself for an adventure.
- Oh yeah, don’t go.
I loved this film. I mean it was tough watching someone go through as many intense moments as he did. As much as I loved the film I couldn’t help shake the feeling that this all could have been avoided by just not going. But you know, Some people just have a lack of fear and a sense that adventure is synonymous with living. All I know is that it made a great movie. I feel pretty bad knowing that Daniel Radcliffe played the role of Yossi Ghinsberg who actually went through these horrors. Crazy!! I have to tell you that there is a torture porn element to the film. As you watch him stumble from one fucked up scenario to another. It was an all nature version of the film U-Turn. It is a testament to the filmmakers that the impact of the story represented itself so well on celluloid.
