"The Revenant" before "The Revenant" was cool.

A movie I had long wanted to watch. At last, I managed to get it and I must say it is the most impressive drama I ever saw set completely in the wilderness. Filmed in Redford-beloved Utah but intended to portray a story taking place in Montana and Wyoming, the scenery is simply mesmerizing in its cold but heartwarming beauty: the ragged mountains, the desertic badlands, the snow-laden forests and mountain streams (not the annoying Hollywood artificial snow whose crystals bever melt even indoors!): everything contributes in making of tgis movie a deeply engaging experience of a spiritual communion with nature. And the relationships between Native Americsns (Crows, Blackfeet) -also genuine- and the "spirits" inhabiting this grand environment is well conveyed to the observer.
I deeply loved that movie, and I add it to a recent string of superb movies the likes of which I hadn't watched since a long time, such as 'Enough Said' and 'Hideous Kinky'.

A very beautiful movie about mountain man Liver-Eating Johnson's life, a man against the wilderness, happiness, hope, and loneliness. Amazing scenery, filmed in Utah. Robert Redford is truly convincing. A must see.

A grand sweeping tale of an early settlers life out in the mountains. Some parts get pretty grim, but there's a few rays of hope throughout as Redford shows off his ability to endure. pretty great score too.

Wow. My top 5 and this was great! One of the only movies to make me feel every emotion, sad, happy, scared, angry, and just plain bad ass

Jeremiah Johnson is not as eye catching as many modern movies, but it contains a wonderful look at the reality of the frontier and doesn't shy away from peering into the psychological realities of this mountain man.

The film stands out for being "Little House on the Prairie" with things to say in a morose way. That and the bare-bones filmmaking stuck in the wilderness with tremendously fun fight scenes is an experience very unique to this genre.

Slow moving, but very good tale about Robert Redford living the life of a mountain man in the old west. The film was writing by one of my all-time favorite writer, John Milius, and he leaves an indelible mark on the film with will either delight or offend viewers. Milius was apparently fired off the film for creative differences, but was ultimately hired back because no other write could write dialogue like MIlius. Directed by Sydney Pollack, this is visually striking film that has ahold west authenticity that you don't see in many westerns, but at the same time has the kind of throwback feel you often see in the films of John Milius. It's a combination that really does manage work and it works quite well.

This, to me is Robert Redford's best movie. The photography is beautiful and a very realistic look at a time gone by.

A man survives in the wilderness in this classic western tale. Pollacks direction is laid back and the acting is superb. Although a character study, the overall film is a Hollywood marvel.

Revenant reminds me of this film and I watched it again on DVD. Great movie! What is the reason to live? Love,revenge? Introspective movie. Does anyone know the original length of this movie? 110 minutes seems too short for this film. Intermission was put in where the rest of the film is only half an hour.

A man leaves the constraints of the big ci

A fairly predictable story is pulled off with solid execution of well-worn Western motifs, along with a fascinating sense of irony throughout the entire film: Jeremiah Johnson wants to escape humanity, but no matter where he goes, the only way his life can possess any sort of purpose is through people, both friend and foe.

Redford at his peak in the 70s. He holds the whole film together without much dialogue. Excellent cinematography and script. The film is ironic, in that Jeremiah turns his back on civilization and pays the price for his freedom.

One of my all time favorite films and one of my all time favorite Robert Redford performances. Very solid all around!
