The Revenant (2015)
Story about our dehumanization
For me, this is a story about our dehumanization. The entire setting, with trapping company that puts its people to great dangers, they work for relatively modest amounts, people need to be paid to go to search for a lost man.... This is a strong statement against our greed, against our pseudo-civilizations where individuals are just insignificant pieces of world economy, without any attachment to life, nature, each other. ThE nature for protagonists is just a thing to exploit for human needs. Though, not for the Director, who is the only one presenting its above-any-moral beauty.
The main character is left empty and it is totally irrelevant will he live or die the moment after the film - he has nothing to live for. He is no longer human, nor he belongs anywhere. Strong anti- consumerism and anti-corporate statement presenting our true nature hidden in the cellophane package of civilization. We are all savages!
Something that rhymes with Hobbit, starts with SH
The third part of the trilogy (?!) is by far the worst ever movie inspired, if inspire is the word to be used in any relation to this movie, by a Talkien book.
If Peter did it for money - I understand. I hope he is happy for taking the money from people earning 250 EUR per month in my country, and that is with the story which is about how gold eventually corrupts everything. In a way, he proved the point, didn't he?
But, if Peter truly believes that THIS was the Hobbit, than something is seriously wrong with his reading and directing skills.
Hollywood at its worst, 144 minutes of violence based on anti-war children book. Could there be a bigger nonsense than this?!
Fortunatelly, this gives an opportunity for someone to make a good Hobbit movie soon.
