The ruined church shown in the dream sequence as constructed is clearly an Orthodox church based on the architectural style of what remains of the building, primarily the nave and iconostasis. The wall in front of the nave is covered with icons on both sides. However, behind this wall in the center is a crucifixion painting rendered in the style of early Renaissance. Such a "modern" painting would never be included with the rest of the icons which usually display the Prophets, Apostles, or Christ Enthroned in Byzantium style. See more »
It's okay son... I know you want this to be over. I'm right here. I will be right here... But you don't give up. You hear me? As long as you can still grab a breath, you fight. You breathe... keep breathing.

Shot using all natural light, The Revenant is one of the most gorgeous films you will ever see. Leonardo Dicaprio deserves his first Oscar for his incredibly dedicated performance, easily the best of his career and Tom Hardy gives an Oscar worthy performance for his role as the haunting beast John Fitzgerald. The first act of the film was definitely the most impressive. With stunning visuals and flawlessly crafted intense action scenes, I felt like I was watching real footage from the 1820's! Then the vast snowy wilderness kicked in, the majority of the time it was breathtaking. But at times The Revenant got a little lost in the wilderness and sometimes felt a bit repetitive, it's still an unpredictable and suspenseful adventure with many surprises. It's no doubt one of the years best films.
