The Revenant (2015)

Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu. Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter. 156 min. Rated R. Adventure/Thriller.

Crazy director makes movie with crazy success-driven actor without much of a story in crazy filming conditions. Iñárritu adds yet another film to his bizarre profile, about loners obsessed with death - and this time, his hero is hell-bent on revenge. If that wasn't enough, the bear mauling scene was a reality I hadn't experienced in a very, very long time. In a low-competition year, DiCaprio has finally secured himself an Academy Award, but I wouldn't really call this 'acting': he seems to be physically experiencing the torture. One of the rare great movies of this year's Oscar season.
