The Revenant or the movie that got Leo his Oscar. It is based on the story of Hugh Glass, a frontiersman who was left for dead but found his way back to society. The movie itself differs a bit from the actual events but that was a long time ago.
This film itself wasn’t that spectacular as for the majority of it the film is heavy breathing and maybe a fog of breathe on the screen. Sure the story is alright and Leonardo DiCaprio did go through a whole lot to get the film made but was his acting in this picture the most brilliant of the year or was it just because Leo needed to have an Oscar. The film also won for Best Actor and Best Cinematography this is the second time in a row for Alejandro G. Iñárritu as Director and the third in a row for Emmanuel Lubezki for Cinematography. Revenant looks amazing and the story is alright but it just seemed to take forever for anything to happen. Sort of how Tarantino’s latest movie The Hateful Eight was, it looked amazing but the story wasn’t that great.
