The Revenant (Alejandro González Iñárritu)
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter, Forrest Goodluck, Christopher Rosamond, Lukas Haas
Why I loved this film: It is enough to know that this was based on a true story, but how they film it makes it even more amazing!
Hugh Glass' determination to survive and find those who abandoned him provides one of the most harrowing stories ever put on screen. Covered in blood, sweat, and dirt, DiCaprio spends much of the movie not talking, keeping the focus on his actions. However, I must say that you rarely see something this intense on screen.
The movie and DiCaprio definitely deserved the Golden Globe and will deserve their Oscars.
In the meantime, you should see The Revenant. It is an experience like you cannot imagine, and it will keep you thinking about those events for quite a while.
