OP here,
Iñárritu even has the audacity to end this movie on the theme of God, and relies on nothing but shock value. This is a movie that 15 y/o watch and instantly claim it to be their favorite movie. This is worse than modern art.

It's a good word for a meme movie.

Masterpiece Memeology.

Lots of Natural Light memes.

Grunting and pulling faces and mumbling is good acting meme.

Beard is acting meme.

I got cold and it wad hard work is acting meme.

Long takes meme.

Pointlessly overlong with nature shot fillers is deep meme.

Ryuichi Sakamoto meme.

Hearts Of Darkness meme.

This movie is a meme in search of an Oscar and a slot on the IMDB top 250.

Pathetic.

>Oh now you're an authority on modern art too. Kill yourself you hipster faggot.

I never claimed to be an authority on anything, tell me why this movie is good? This movie is the equivalent of modern art, ie throwing shit against a wall and c oming up with something that 'resembles' art. Please tell me about all the artsy references i've missed when watching this movie, or am i just not 'smart' enough? I think you are projecting, if anything..

It's an action thriller dressed up with Real Art tropes to make it seem like an awards container/big boy film.

this. but the real pretension is expecting the merits of a performance based on a near-crippled survivor to even be open for appraisal, as if the director, actor or audience had similar experiences they can draw comparisons from to gauge authenticity. It's a trap, a smug and calculated one.

the real test is to just slap i dunno, paul dano or jaden smith in the same role, and see if you're still convinced you're watching a hugh glass.

I'm saying they shouldn't aspire to cobble together cliches of what plebs think Art is.

Every inarritu film reminds me of Barney's short film from The Simpsons.

He's the anti-Tarantino. A shallow pleb masquerading as an artist, imitating the trailer highlights of revered films.

there's an argument to be made that the flashbacks and visions he has are pretentious, especially so since they keep repeating them in with different stylistic approaches

the flashbacks provide some basic narrative drive as to why he is persevering but they could have achieved that by only showing each flashback or vision once

it's absolute bullshit to call any other part of the movie pretentious though

> Long Takes = Good Movie

You're a pleb. You're on your way to patricianhood, but at the moment you are only able to identify a film by noting shallow superficial similarities to other films with high critical standing.

You probably still think black and white equals depth.

But this is good. At least you're progressing. You will probably have decent taste by the time you finish high school at this rate.

Inarritu is a showy director that can't fully accomplish all that he tries, but you people need to stop acting like he's trying to be a visionary genius. He just wants his movies well shot, is that such a crime? Are you people condemning him for trying? I'd rather have a showy movie that tries to be greater than it is than another average shot by-the-books movie without a director's hand visible

Leo rescued her from the French who were raping her. Later, we see that her father found her, she was the second one on the horse when Leo fought down Hardy. They slowed the time for it, I think, so people like you would observe, by her distinct eyemarkings, that it was her and she'd be reunited.

Don't think my wallet's going to make it, brahs, at least tell me it's going to be worth it. The Revenant looks fun except for the long take in the trailer during the action scene, I'm normally a fan of them but it just looked out of place in the setting and genre.

Eh the story is actually lackluster and if you wanan have some western revenge story, Django tells it a hundred times better and has like the same length.

Same fucking face pain because same fucking tribe. I looked this up because it was not clear although I know you are right. They never made this clear.

>realistic
this is an invalid criticism as a performance isn't rated for realism but for how it connects with an audience. obviously, it connected with members of the academy, the only people who matter when it comes to oscar nominations.

my opinion, within the context of the film, Leo's performance was stellar. however, if we're talking about realism, again, not really a valid criticism since each film creates its own relative reality, Leo's depiction of pain worked rather well.

If it wasn't getting praise then we could all agree that it's just a good, exciting movie. There was nothing deep about it but it was tense the whole way through, had great visuals, great acting, great costume design, and a decent story. There's nothing to read into so why can't people just enjoy it for what it is? A badass guy doing badass things and managing to not die against overwhelming odds.
>>
>>64884174
Ok, I was just shitposting, but since you asked a sincere question, I'll put my doodoo pen down.

The movie got the indians right. Things around this time would go from open season on whites to good trading partners, depending on the season and especially the tribe.

The later 1800's got really nasty for indian/white relations. The fur era had tons of intermarriages, primarily for trading purposes. To this day, most indians that don't have an indian sounding last name have french or german names.

The location of the film missed by a long shot at times. You'd be seeing nothing but open plains and winding muddy rivers in an accurate movie.

I literally watched it because of the Oscar hype. When I first saw the trailer I thought "looks kinda boring, will probably skip". Then I hear from all sides that it's actually amazing so I go check it out and it's exactly as boring as the trailer tells. Every single interesting thing happens in the trailer.

So no I don't agree with that. I fell for the Oscar movies are good meme

I thought it was one of the most exciting movies I've seen in a long time. Not because of suspense over what will happen but just because of the constant danger the characters were in.

>>64884560
>but just because of the constant danger the characters were in.

Yeah that kinda got me on the edge too. Sometimes. But it doesn't really hold up for 2 hours. You know he needs to face Fitz in the end so he's gonna survive no matter what so that feeling stopped about halfway through.
And the climax it was building up to wasn't all that satisfying

It was definitely a little too long but that's my only complaint. The repeated flashbacks were unnecessary.

So what did Inarritu mean by those?
>>
>>64882556
Motion picture or something? Yeah it's stupid.

>>64884174
Really very accurate. There are Cree, Pawnee, and Sioux referenced throughout the movie. Cree is separate language family I think. I'm curious, I don't think they said what tribe his wife and son were.
>>
The Revenant is simply the representation of the artistic bankruptcy plaguing the contemporary film industry.

Like Birdman, Iñárritu's last endeavor in hackery, this latest attempt is to convince the masses that what they are viewing is something deep or meaningful, when all it has done is push forward shallow technicality and exaggeration to make the frame pulsate with vulgar loudness. Characters are mere veneers, the cinematography is pretty but so conspicuous as to be rendered aggravating and the thesis is about as overdone as DiCaprio's acting. The camera feels like it has been waiting all day for a climactic shot and the film's deliberately difficult production history is laid bare in the indulgent cinematography.

Thematic complexity and philosophical subtext take a back seat to what amounts to as basically an action movie with action stars wrapped up in the veil of arthouse. And much like Salome, what lies beneath is ultimately puerile, obscene and holding fascination only for adolescents.

Iñárritu is guilty of something far greater than simply making a bad movie. He is guilty for the crime of gestating his pretense and self-importance, forcing many others to labor over it in a misguided attempt to create art and daring to call the afterbirth a film. Perhaps instead of taking his cast and crew to the ends of the Earth in search of a better shot, the Mexican counterfeit filmmaker should have taken his juvenile and crass sensibilities to the seedy San Fernando valley. There he could have at least made a profit of filming all the money shots he wanted.

I liked the long takes tbqh. My dad said it made him nauseous.

It made me feel so much more involved in the first battle between the Indians and the trappers. Seems like most movies now would have had 27 different camera angles, all super shaky cam, with every take just long enough for you to see that some dude is getting fucked up until it switches to the next dude getting fucked up. The first battle must have been a complete bitch to film. I thought it was done well, and felt very grisly and involved.

He's comparing actors AND the ending. Oldboy was making an entirely different point. Oldboy was designed to make you feel like you, the viewer, got fucking raped. It goes all out with ruining the protagonist, but let's not forget they then took a step back and had him get hypnotized or whatever bullshit that was.

Weak comparison. Not all revenge movies are supposed to fuck over the protagonist and deny them their revenge. You'd be better served comparing Revenant to either of Park's other movies in his vengeance trilogy.

That's a pretty fucking shitty explanation. I liked the movie up until the last couple of scenes where DiCaprio seemed to be immune from his wounds and became fucking superman with a vengeance.

I don't understand why Inarritu would make him regain so much strength. Even if a couple weeks or so had gone by, he would not be anywhere near recovered enough to take on healthy man in the fucking mountain peaks. It just made the whole film come off as rushed and half-assed to me. Even if I did enjoy the cinematography.

I liked it, but I feel like either the story is very lopsided or it was marketed wrongly. Because knowing that it is a revenge story going in makes the lead-in to that betrayal seem to drag. Cause we know Glass loses his son thanks to all the advertising for the film, we know he's left for dead and comes back to get revenge. But the actual revenge part doesn't happen til the very end.

So I can only conclude that the movie is actually about something else, but I'd have to watch it again without any expectations for the story to see what I get out of it. Cause I didn't get the revenge story I expected, and I wasn't unhappy with what I got either, so I think it bears watching again.

Watched it. Enjoyed the crap out of it. Thought the cinematography was great in its own right, thought the hallucinations/dreams of his wife were a bit out of place. Thought the idea of God taking the reigns of revenge would have been better poetic justice if they had made it a little bit more of a central theme. As it stands, it seems like someone thought the idea would be cool, so they threw in a single line earlier in the movie so the idea of letting God decide things didn't come completely out of left field. Thought the music was lackluster too. But seriously, some of those shots were downright beautiful, and the action was great. Loved Fitzgerald, even if the only intelligible lines were something about God being a squirrel.

What I liked:

The way the action and gore scenes were handled.

The different characters.

The setting.

The general plot.

The different groups of characters and how their activities were followed.

What I didn't like:

How the movie continually slowed down towards the end.

There were a decent number of shots that dragged on just a little too long, a good 5 seconds could be cut from most and still get the effect they were looking for.

The ending, wasn't horrible, but was meh and didn't satisfy me.

(p.s. My favorite scenes were the opening sequence and the scene where he meets the Native American who shares the raw bison meat with him by the fires.)

How I would rate it:

Pretty good.
