Short Review

The Revenant is a modern visual masterpiece. A poetic beauty of nature marked by the ugly human violence imposed upon it. And while the struggle of a man trying to avenge his murdered son seems to be a simple plot, Iñárritu made it sure that it is a transportive experience like no other. The director's fascination of long shots and complex camera work are well presented here (quite often so), and the undeniably outstanding work of Lubezki's cinematography will not stop him from getting that well-deserved Oscar three-peat comes Hollywood's biggest night.

Finally, fans of Leonardo DiCaprio will soon rejoice, for this is his Oscar to lose. More importantly, the social media will soon put an end to the revolting (although incredibly funny) memes of him being Oscar-less (in before the Oscar goes to "The Bear"). He made a very engaging performance, making you feel like you are also part of his struggles. And although Tom Hardy offered a good performance, his hard-to-decipher accent was sure way below acceptable; and his spot in the Supprting Actor category could have been replaced by the incredible snubbed work of Jacob Tremblay (Room).

Rating

9.2/10
