Phoenix (8.5/10) really packs the emotional wallop; watched it about a week ago and still thinking about it- probably safe to assume it features best closing scene this year

also makes a good double feature with Barbara (8/10), also on netflix streaming with same director & main actors

i saw it again this weekend with my girlfriend, who hadn't seen it yet. the first hour she kept giving me these "what the horsefeathers are you making me watch?!" glances and by the time the flame-throwing guitar player showed up, she was all in. she's never seen any of the previous mad max films before, so she had no idea what to expect.

for a film like this to be in development hell for as long as it was and to come out and be this good blows my mind.

Oh, horsefeathers yes:

“Without an honest confrontation, there is no healing.” That’s from Birth Of A Nation director-producer-star Nate Parker today onstage at the Sundance Film Festival. In what I have to say was one of the most emotional experiences I’ve had at a movie theater, Parker world premiered what he called his seven-year “passion project.” His telling of the early 19th century slave revolt led by Nat Turner had audience members crying in their seats and jumping to their feet in a prolonged standing ovation at the film’s conclusion.

Oscars, Shmoscars; I just want a great Nat Turner movie that gets him known more in terms of American history.

Give me a John Brown movie after that.

Well he certainly tried, during his 20 or so lines of dialogue.

Hardy was actually trying for something with his accent, unlike Leo.

About the film, I came across a review that made the point that it was unnecessary for them to give Leo's character a son and to have Hardy kill him, thus creating this uber-villain character. If they had just stuck with the actual true story, it would have been a much more morally ambiguous tale, wherein two guys who are freaked the hell out about Natives abandon their very near death buddy. We would maybe have sympathized with them in a way.

For a movie that was trying hard to be atypical in so many ways, it was somewhat of a letdown that the plot had to be embellished into a "he killed my family, now I'm gonna kill him" Hollywood plot. In the movie, there isn't tons of tension about the inevitable outcome because we've seen these revenge movies before, time and time again, and we know how they turn out: we know the good guy is going to encounter the bad guy and there is going to be a showdown. If they had stuck with the true story, we would have followed Leo on his survival trek and we wouldn't have known how he was going to react when he confronted the two men. Was he going to kill them? Forgive them? There would have been some extra tension in that. In the true story, the only thing Glass really wanted with the two men was to have his rifle returned that they took.

I'm sure the dumb masses would have found the true story even more boring and slow, but I think it would have told a better tale.

That's been one of Iñárritu's main problems in his films; he seems to have little grasp of human emotions outside of misery and anger. Anything that can be seen as a happiness or something positive ultimately only serves as a plot point to plunge everyone into something terrible. But he dresses it up very well, so it usually squeaks by, but ultimately his movies now are defined more by filmmaking gimmickry than actually being well rounded, well crafted works. Sure, they look good, but so what? His stories and characters are ultimately paper-thin, which is the stupid irony of The Revenant; he comes across a movie where the story is as simple as can be: a man is left to die in the wilderness, but doesn't and seeks to confront the men who abandoned him. Yet he can't help himself and has to stretch it to make it even more miserable than the situation already is.

Harrison is going to make sequels to all of his old roles. Witness 2 should be a big hit.
