The Revenant (Alejandro González Iñárritu)

Inspired by true events, The Revenant captures one man's epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald. Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.

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.
