THE REVENANT
2015, 20th Century Fox, 156 min, USA, Dir: Alejandro González Iñárritu

The life of explorer Hugh Glass inspired this visceral adventure set in the 1820s. Golden Globe winner Leonardo DiCaprio is unforgettable as Glass, who is left for dead after being mauled by a bear but survives to track down his betrayer (Tom Hardy). Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, production designer Jack Fisk and costume designer Jacqueline West have defied the elements to bring some truly amazing imagery to the screen - not since DELIVERANCE has a film so powerfully captured both the beauty and the violence of the American wilderness.
