In the pursuit of self-discovery and authentic experiences, the Israeli backpacker, Yossi Ghinsberg, meets a cryptic Austrian geologist in La Paz, Bolivia, and captivated by his engrossing stories of lost tribes, uncharted adventures and even gold, decides to follow him, circa 1981. Without delay and accompanied by the good friends, Kevin, an American photographer, and Marcus, a Swiss teacher, they join an expedition led by their seasoned trail-leader, deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rainforest. However, as the endless and inhospitable jungle separates the inexperienced team, before long, Yossi will find himself stranded in the depths of a nightmarish environment crawling with formidable and tireless adversaries. How can one escape this green maze?

    Nothing bad technically speaking about the movie, except for the script, the characters, and the story itself. I believe the movie is important and real, because like it or not, there are thousands of bored gringos who are desperate for 'adventures' and think they're gonna be the next indiana jones or something and decide to trek up to the Amazon, searching for undiscovered species, dreaming of meeting indians and fighting jaguars. Moneyfull ex-soldiers who believe will find god drinking yagé, and goldenspooned blondies who wanna snap a selfie with an alligator. I've met people like that, several times, and it is always stupid. It so stupid that you might die, shamefully; or because it is so stupid, that if you decide to tell your story to anybody, it will sound like pure crap, like this movie.

    I liked this film. It wasn't great, and you can see the director directing, but it was pretty good. Everyone on screen did as they were paid to do. I wonder if they could've done with less CGI in the picture, though, as some of it seemed a little unreal.

    The religious tie-ins at the end of the movie weren't expected, but taken from Yoshi's religious background and his point of view, it was believable. A little heavy handed, but believable.

    Lastly, if you're a fan of horror, this movie might appeal to you as there are several horror tropes within in - eerie silence, darkness, things that go bump in the night, blood, stalkers, etc.

    Despite a few minor mistakes in the filming and the characters, this movie really got to me. It made me want to sell all of my belongings and backpack into the jungle as well and I think that this is what the movie was going for.

    If you are a person like me with a day job which you sometimes think you would want to get away from and if you are able to emphasize with characters in movies - definitely watch this!
