Frontier epic takes cine-suffering to new levels of agony and - most importantly - veracity.

Iñárritu has constructed an epic fable of uncommon grace and resonance--a film that, like its hero, achieves a kind of transcendence.
January 8, 2016
As an action movie with a grisly exploitation edge, The Revenant could have been a triumph. But Inarritu can't seem to stop lunging after greatness: some of his symbolic touches reach new heights of kitsch.

The journey is long and painstaking, the better to give you a sense of just what is being opposed to what.

DiCaprio may get put through bloody hell, but on a big screen "The Revenant" is heaven, with Lubezki's camera painting the American West as a rapturous primeval proving ground.
