Thompson, perfectly demonstrated by this subtle and cool, of course monologue placed in between the drugs, depravity and insanity of the rest of the film. Students like Nic Cage. So he might have finally won his Oscar for eating Bison brain and moaning a lot or something like that in The Revenant, but it was in Wolf that we saw Leo at his thrilling, arrogant, charismatic best; with no scene more thrilling and arrogant than his sudden and steadfast refusal to leave the empire that's crumbling around him.
Despite being emblazoned on the posters and in the minds of a thousand angsty teenage boys and more than a few men since it was first uttered by Tyler Durden's nihilistic tongue, the famous Fight Club anti-capitalist, pre-fighting rant still makes our list. Legend has it that Brando, bloated and decaying at the end of his career, improvised the entirety of this scene; a monologue considered by many to be the greatest of all time. Every subtle intonation and shift of expression sending you, the viewer, deeper into the horror the horror of the film.

Grenn : They only come when it's cold. Samwell : Yes, but is it the cold that brings the wights, or the wights that bring the cold? Necromancy animates these wights, yet they are still only dead flesh.
Steel and fire will serve for them. The ones you call the Others are something more. You saw the wights come swarming up the Fist , a tide of living dead men with black hands and bright blue eyes. You'd best pray it's a wildling blade that kills me, though. The ones the Others kill don't stay dead Cellador : Wights are monstrous, unnatural creatures. Abominations before the eyes of the gods. Jon : Monsters they may be, but they were men before they died. How much remains? The one I slew was intent on killing Lord Commander Mormont.
Plainly he remembered who he was and where to find him My lord father used to tell me that a man must know his enemies. We understand little of the wights and less about the Others.
The 10 Best Speeches In Film
We need to learn. Are you so blind, or is it that you do not wish to see? What do you think will happen when all these enemies are dead? The group is left with a quandary on their hands. Glass, was important in their surviving this far, but what now? So the group decides to leave his son, and two others with him, until he dies. Obviously Glass survives, and the rest of the film is just one big nature porn — revenge flick.
One of the greatest next two hours of cinematography actually. How on earth is this going to play out? How could this possibly have really happened? All of these thoughts went through my mind, over and over again.
The movie is kind of like letting someone disembowel you, and then, at regular intervals, letting them stir the contents of your intestines while you watch. And by the way, I mean this in the best possible way. It is a movie that demands respect. It is a truly fantastic movie in every sense of the word. Here is the trailer for this flick — definitely a better trailer than the first one they released which told too much of the story: See? Goodness, and light. What an extraordinarily good movie. Makes me want to head to the theater today and watch it again.
The Revenant was originally a novel released in by author Michael Punke. And surprisingly, the book is an absolutely rip-roaring read. The nameless Indian, watching from up above. The fact that the indians are the stand in for evil, and are the two dimensional bad guys?
Seems like lazy writing to me. But otherwise the book is a fantastic read. I enjoyed it after the fact anyway. But one of the single biggest differences between the novel, and the movie, is enormously significant. And that is that Glass, had a son, and his son, was half Pawnee Indian.
The historical Glass, did spend a year with the Pawnee Indians. So maybe it could have happened that he had a son via a Pawnee wife? I went digging, fairly deeply, and came up with this first telling of the story of Hugh Glass in the Missouri Trapper. I mean, how can you not completely flip out when reading this sort of thing? The hardships voluntarily encountered, and the privations manfully endured,, by this hardy race in the excercise of their perilous calling, present abundant proofs of those peculiar characteristics which distinguish the American woodsmen.
The trackless desers of Missouri, the innumerable tributary streams of the Mississippi, the fastnesses of the Rocky Mountains, have all been explored by these bold adventurers; and the great increasing importance of the Missouri fur trade, is an evidence, as well of their numbers, as of their skill and perseverance. The basics of the story in the original account, the letters, the novel if not also the movie are simple enough. A group of fur traders were moving through the Missouri wilderness.
Casting him again upon the earth, his grim adversary tore out a mouthful of the cannibal food which had excited her appetite, and retired to submit the sample to her yearling cubs, which were near at hand. The sufferer now made an effort to escape, but the bear immediately returned with a reinforcement, and seized him again at the shoulder; she also lacerated his left arm very much, and inflicted a severe wound on the back of his head. In this second attack, the cubs were prevented from participating by one of the party who had rushed sorward to the relief of his comrade.
Glass is laid waste by a bear, and nearly dies. The whole company is in debt to Glass for his skills, and his abilities, and so they decide that they will leave a few men back with Glass and bury him after he dies. But in the historical account, it was the fact that five men, willingly chose to live Glass behind.
They took his gun. They took his supplies. And they left him for dead.

Glass managed to crawl to a nearby stream, and to subsist on berries and on the water. He then began the slow mile crawl back towards civilization. Either way, both would be enough to make me want to kill someone. But much much more intense. Last year, my favorite movie of the year was an easy choice.
And a lot of that had to do with the cutting edge cinematography. The interesting editing or non-editing? And the compelling way in which the movie was told. The special effects are completely invisible in this movie. What special effects? This movie really happened.
For example the avalanche that Glass watching pouring down out of the mountains.
Or wait, better yet, this whole scene right here: We see a ton of stuff in this chase scene that has got to be special effects. But what? I have no idea.
