The Revenant (2015)Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has once again kick-started off the year… More Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has once again kick-started off the year with a more "Uncompromising Masterpiece", 'The Revenant' is a film that makes no apologies to get dirty and downright nitty gritty. Although what sets it apart from your atypical 'western' outing, isn't just it's grand production value, exuberantly stunning and beautiful cinematography from the great Emanuel Lubezki that'll make viewers try very hard to not look away from, It's the atmospheric tone and wry moments of incredible shock and amazement taken from the progression of the film's plot, characters and overall setting that couldn't look any more better than the almost impossible feat of being captured in natural light. DiCaprio is also an actor who never fails to impress me, viewers will feel just as exhausted and pressured by the events and circumstances his character endures throughout the entire run time of the film and given this much commitment to a role like this is most certainly a 'career high' for Dicaprio regardless whether or not it will give him the gold he deserves at the Academy Awards. I also praise the film's incredibly talented supporting players who may also be thankful to be part of an incredibly tough production such as this. Mind those reading, the film may not be for everyone given it's long run time, but if given a fair chance viewers will be rewarded greatly as it is a prime cautionary tale of Man vs. Nature and the motivation of vengeance.
