RE THE REVENANT
FILM @_MIG_MIGS: The Revenant
was beautifully shot and uncompromising in depicting a gritty tale of revenge rivaling classics such as The Outlaw Josey Wales @LETMECLARA_FY: I would pay to see The Revenant
about 2-3 more times @EAGLESKEV: The Revenant
(15) Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter, Forrest Goodluck Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Duration: 156 mins IF film awards were bestowed for dogged determination and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, The Revenant
would sweep next month's Oscars.
The 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards were announced at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on January 10 with The Revenant
and The Martian winning Best Motion Picture, Drama and Best Motion Picture, Musical Or Comedy, respectively.
The film's bleak barbarism is off-set by the awesome backdrop of snow and, while indulgent at times, The Revenant
is a striking achievement.

's" official poster, Leo's latest film, and wrote, "If DiCaprio doesn't win an Oscar this year or for all his years of acting, then I will quit what I claim to be good at: acting."
