The Revenant


A gruelling survival western that grapples with the unbreakable extremity of human will, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant is a visceral throat-grabbing trek through the frostbitten wilderness. Current Oscar favourite Leonardo DiCaprio stars as the gruffly bearded Hugh Glass, a legendary nineteenth century frontiersman who miraculously sustained a viscously savage bear attack whilst aiding a military fur-trapping expedition. Physicality is an imperative corner stone throughout The Revenant - from snow dense wintry terrain to hellishly embattled performances - it is etched upon every glacially aesthetic frame. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki captures the relentless brutality of humanity and nature with tension rising tracking shots that culminate in transformative viewing. Leaving a sub-zero sentiment long after the credits have rolled this seething tale of unyielding revenge and spiritual redemption is a punishing spectacle.
