THE REVENANT (Movie Review)

**** out of ****

My review of The Revenant, at Crosswalk.com, inspired by a 19th Century American Frontiersman’s real fight for survival – and revenge.

The Revenant is ranked #1 on my Top Ten List for 2015.

An excerpt from my review:

“…a grueling, often torturous tale, testing the limits of both its actors and audience…Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman) loves to drag his characters through gauntlets – both physical and psychological – and star Leonardo DiCaprio has made a career out of putting himself through them. Their collaboration is potent.”
