The Revenant

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Golden Globe Best Picture, The Reveant, is a fantastically harsh tale of survival and revenge, where men’s intentions, beliefs and motivations clash against the backdrop of an unforgiving American frontier. It is brutal and difficult to watch at times, yet beautiful in scope and cinematography. The camerawork is tremendous, as we are accustomed to expect from Iñárritu. Leonardo Di Caprio is excellent, perhaps his best work to date. Tom Hardy deserves credit as well, although he did not receive any award nominations. It may not stack up against past Best Picture Oscar winners, but worth watching in the context of this years crop of films.
