Oscar-winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu applies his artful specificity to one of the wildest settings imaginable, resulting in a gripping and immersive frontier adventure. As an exercise in pure cinematic style, The Revenant is almost unprecedented - the film is simply staggering to behold for practically its entire running time. Iñárritu dives deep into the savagery of the setting and characters, exploring the insanity from all angles while maintaining a remarkably steady directorial hand.

DiCaprio's raw performance helps elevate what could have been just another man-versus-nature drama.
