"Survivor"

Michael Panke's novel of the same name was partly based on the life of Hugh Glass, whose role was played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Hugh Glass was an American hunter and mountain guide, and became famous in 1823 after a fight with a grizzly bear. He was seriously injured, including a broken leg, but was able to travel more than 300 km without food and equipment to survive. He crawled most of the way.

A familiar plot? Yes, this is the same" Survivor " for which Leo received his long-awaited Oscar statuette. But not all critics agree that this is his best role (and when do all critics agree?). During the premiere screening in the thousand-seat hall of the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, groans and dissatisfied exclamations were constantly heard due to excessively violent scenes. And some critics even defiantly left the cinema.
