Revenant: 2.A person or thing reborn (Wiktionary).

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant is adapted from a novel that was based on real events, so it comes by its PR as ‘inspired by true events’ the long way round – but that does not lessen its impact.

The Revenant is a riveting tale of brutal survival and the desire for revenge. It is elegantly shot but the violence is brutal and the obstacles unrelenting. It may get Leonardo DiCaprio his long-deserved Oscar® – and it might give cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki a shot at his third consecutive Oscar®.

You like them now!’) may not have been many, but they were perfect – making the point and then moving on (from that first dig right into a stunning eight-minute song and dance number that dropped him into classic movie scenes).

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance): A Fabulous Fiction Rooted In Truth!

birdman

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a brilliant bombastic, bizarre skewering of: superhero movies, egocentric actors, actors’ insecurities, Broadway, Broadway critics, and pretty much all things entertainment.

The story of Riggan Thomson’s (Michael Keaton) effort to be taken seriously as an actor/director/playwright after having starred in three superhero movies twenty years ago – Birdman is directed as a continuous shot (which is difficult because the film takes place over a considerably longer period that its two-hour running time).
