Mini Review - The Revenant

The Revenant (out Jan 7) is set in the early 19th Century and follows an explorer hunting the man who killed his only son. The film is more likely to be remembered for Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance than its slow-paced, grim narrative. An endurance test for both its leading character and the audience. Beautifully shot by cinematographer cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. Grade: B+.
