2016 – Drama: The Revenant

Leonardo DiCaprio went wild, literally, in The Revenant, trekking through the wilderness with just a bear skin on his bare body, wild hair, and beard, a lonely wolf against the elements, the icy cold, and the white man’s cruelty. With this revenge tale inspired by the story of frontiersman Hugh Glass, set in the northern mountains around 1820, and hinged on the plight of Native people, DiCaprio won his third Golden Globe as Best Actor (out of ten nominations), and his first Academy Award after five attempts.

Tarkovsky And The Revenant – Homage, And Beyond.

After Russian documentarian Misha Petric made a short video compilation The Revenant By Tarkovsky which cuts together 17 the similarly looking scenes from The Revenant and from selected films by the late Russian master Andrei Tarkovsky - such as Andrei Rublev, Ivan’s Childhood, Mirror, Nostalgia and The Sacrifice - social media was flooded with enormous amount of commentary. Some of them accused Alejandro González Iñarritu, director of the three-time Golden Globe winner, of outright stealing from Tarkovsky.
