Did You Know?
- In 2010 Christian Bale was attached to play Hugh Glass, with John Hillcoat directing.
- 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.
- Hugh Glass: I ain't afraid to die anymore. I'd done it already.

Too over hyped
Exhausting but worth it. Acting is superb and special effects are off the charts.
If Iñárritu wanted to show how life on the frontier was miserable and monotonous he succeeded — by making a movie that is miserable and monotonous. Some of the greatest cinematography in history can’t change that fact.
Pushing both brutal realism and extravagant visual poetry to the edges of what one customarily finds in mainstream American filmmaking, director/co-writer Alejandro G. Inarritu, cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and a vast team of visual effects wizards have created a sensationally vivid and visceral portrait of human endurance under very nearly intolerable conditions.
This brutal survival tale is so powerfully engrossing that, despite the clear limitations of his monochromatic, showy approach, the film’s compelling construction tends to override the legitimate criticisms.
