The Revenant ★★★½

beautifully shot:
the sublime wilderness made manifest
well acted too.
but overlong,
with too many dream sequences

glass becomes the bear
he too wanted to protect his cub
he too would fight to the death
~and beyond~
to do so

but i'd've liked a story beyond that.

this is a meditation on two things, really:
survival and revenge

still a very good film.
i seriously shouted
"make it stop" at my t.v.
during that monstrous mauling.
