Live blog : The Revenant

PLEASE READ WITH CAUTION – THIS WILL OBVIOUSLY CONTAIN SPOILERS IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE REVENANT!!!!

16.38 – The film begins with whispering in a foreign language, which to me has connotations of both fear, as you whisper to be quiet and secretive, which therefore can connote solitude – is this going to forebode what happens throughout the film?
Who knows? Probably someone who’s already watched the film, of which is not me.

 

“… Don’t give up,

you hear me?

as long as you can still grab a breath, you fight

you breathe… keep breathing.”

 

The above quote is the final passage of whispering, and already two minutes into the film we’ve already encountered something quite deep.

16.47PM

They’re walking through water, looks pretty chilly.
They’ve got shotguns, and you can hear a shrill noise in the background, such as whistling, or screaming.
You can also hear a hog, of which I assume is what they’re trailing through the stream for with shotguns.

16.50PM

A lot of people have just been shot with arrows, it’s kinda crazy right now.
They’re being attacked but it doesn’t seem like they know who’s doing it, or where it’s coming from because the arrows are coming from many different directions.

There’s a methodic pounding of a drum every so often, it sounds like a slowing heart beat, mimicking death and gunshots.
It could also be predicting the future of those within the frame… DEATH (maybe, I’m not so sure yet)

16.53PM

 

Someone just got shot and fell off their horse.

Ouch.

 

16.56PM
A complete scene of devastation, despair and death.
Everything is grey.

A tree is on fire and it just fell onto their camp.

17.10PM

This film is so intense and dark that it requires 12,000% of my attention.
Leo’s character just got mauled by a bear, but it’s alright, he stabbed it several times.

And then Leo’s character fell down a hill, and the bear fell on top of him… If Leo makes another appearance I’ll be damned!

17.24PM

“Lay the rag over his eyes!”

One of the men, I’ll call him “Gingerbeard” wants to shoot Leo’s character, Glass (Hugh).

Gingerbeard has also informed his pals to care for Hugh as best as they can, and give him a proper burial when he dies, as they, like me, expect him to perish rather soon… It’s a complete shock he’s still alive!

17.32PM

They just tried to smother Hugh… To be fair, he was only trying to put him out of his misery…

17.37PM

How dare they try to buy Glass alive… He’s escaped death 3 times in the past 30 minutes….
17.53PM

Hugh just started a fire and cauterised his own wound.. Crazy

18.00PM

How he’s still alive is beyond me… He should have hypothermia by now, alongside frostbite

18.10PM

Hugh has made a new friend and uttered his first word in English… “Grizzly”

18.20PM

I don’t quite understand what’s going on… I think he was in the thing they make Homer Simpson do in The Simpsons Movie

18.21PM

Epiphany. Hugh just had an epiphany.

18.33PM

Would you believe me if I told you he was inside of a horse?

Cos he is

18.43PM

He’s found those who had left him dead… I think… I don’t know, I really don’t find this film interesting.  My favourite Leo film is The Wolf of Wallstreet ❤️

19.00PM

Hugh just hacked someone’s fingers off with an axe.

They’re now wrestling and I am not enjoying this movie.

19.03PM

“Revenge is in God’s hands… Not mine.”
19.06PM

Alas. It’s over.
