Denial is powerful and common

By Sam

Comments about PBS Return to The Wild - The Chris McCandless Story DVD:

This is as heartfelt and real a story as it gets. So many of us keep family secrets and want to believe all families are generally the same or better. But,those who are courageous enough to see and speak the truth often find themselves blacklisted from the birth family. The families loss. Instead, shedding the secrets and lies leads to freedom and a true love of life.

More insightful than the movie!

Comments about PBS Return to The Wild - The Chris McCandless Story DVD:

Some may conclude this young man was simply misguided and ill-prepared for where life ultimately took him. However victims of abuse state that all forms of abuse - verbal, physical, sexual - can be equally devastating and it is also known that not only those at whom abuse is directed, but also those who witness abuse, are affected. This documentary shows how being raised in an environment of abuse changed how he saw life and chose to live it. His parents continue to live in oblivious denial two decades later, underscoring how this issue remains largely misunderstood and overlooked in today's society.

The shame is on whom?

By JD

Comments about PBS Return to The Wild - The Chris McCandless Story DVD:

It appears that this young man suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder, and at least a couple of siblings as well. This is not only a challenging disorder diagnose and treat, but also a nightmare to understand. For PBS to become involved in a very destructive documentary that blames and accuses based on innuendo and perceptions based on potentially skewed perceptions of reality is alarming. Perhaps the public would be best served with a detailed documentary on the struggle families face dealing with BPD in the home.
