The Revenant (2015)

In the words of Leonardo DiCaprio himself, this was “…a transcendent movie experience.” Alejandro Iñárritu has outdone his previous work (Birdman) with one of this year’s better movies.

On a side note, a big congratulatory write-up for Leonardo DiCaprio is definitely in order. 2013 was close, but no cigar for Leo as Matthew McConaughey gave a performance of a lifetime in Dallas Buyers Club. 2015 though was deservedly Leo’s as it was, without a doubt, an incredibly intense and immersive characterization that was made possible with the help of a great supporting cast and Iñárritu’s impecabble direction.
