There are blockbuster movies, there are art house movies, and there's CINEMA.
And The Revenant is CINEMA.
Every scene, every frame is shot to perfection. The cinematography is gorgeous. I couldn't imagine how they filmed any scene in this movie, only using natural lighting.
Leonardo Dicaprio possibly gives one of the most dedicated performances ever. With very minimal dialogue, you can see the story behind his character. He REALLY is one of the best.
Unfortunately, towards the 2nd half, I really started to feel the run time of this movie. Which was a little too long in my opinion.
No other movie I've seen had this much visual storytelling. It was an experience. Go watch it! Just to know that movies like this exist.
