The Revenant

Yeah, I’m ridiculously late to the party in terms of this film, which is surprising since it’s a genre I love (I mean, it is sort of a western, although the “survival” nature really takes over). The movie did in fact blow me away, and has some of the most amazing and mesmerizing shots I’ve seen on film. This is again a case where I came into it not thinking it could possibly live up to all its hype (insane critical praise and a truckload of awards), and it still ended up blowing me away.
