Director Alejandro González Iñárritu is staying firmly in the right place as he delivers one of his best films. It was as gritty as the story demanded and Iñárritu’s ruthless directing style was applied perfectly. The cast is fantastic, with Leonardo DiCaprio stealing the show, while Tom Hardy and Will Poulter lead the superb supporting cast. The genius behind the film is cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, using only natural light and stunning landscapes to present some of the most beautiful shots I have ever seen in cinema. This is the epitome of brilliant story telling, and a masterclass in film making.
