So I watched The Revenant

I’m shocked at how much they changed from the novel. The natural light really drew me in. You really get a powerful contrast, though, in two gritty characters between Fitzgerald, the man who thinks it’s best to always act in self interest, and Glass, the man who survived because of his generous tenderness and the tenderness of others (he proves his conscience when, all alone in the middle of the harsh bush, he gently touches the dead body of a horse he used to survive- fitzgerald, ruthlessly pragmatic and materialistic, wouldn’t bother with that gesture just as he wouldn’t bother with revenge).
