Hugh Glass: [in Pawnee] It's okay son... I know you want this to be over. I'm right here. I will be right here... But you don't give up. You hear me? As long as you can still grab a breath, you fight. You breathe... keep breathing.

Andrew Henry: Is it true you killed an officer? 
Hugh Glass: I just killed a man who was trying to kill my son.

Jones: Those pelts are stolen. 
Elk Dog: You all have stolen everything from us. Everything! The land. The animals.

John Fitzgerald: That claw doesn't belong to you.

Hikuc: My heart bleeds. But revenge is in the creator's hands.

Hugh Glass: I need a horse and a gun. 
Andrew Henry: No, you need rest and something to eat. I'm going after him. 
Hugh Glass: No You'll never find him without me. 
Andrew Henry: Wait till morning, he'll have a day's head start and get away. 
Hugh Glass: No he won't. He's afraid. He knows how far I came for him. Same as that elk, when they get afraid they run deep in to the woods. I got him trapped, he just, He doesn't know it yet. 
Andrew Henry: How can you be so sure? 
Hugh Glass: Cause he has everything to lose. All I had was that boy - and he took him from me.

Hawk: Can you hear the wind, father? Remember what mother used to say about the wind? The wind cannot defeat the tree with strong roots.

John Fitzgerald: [to Glass] Look at me scalp. 
Andrew Henry: That's enough! 
John Fitzgerald: [to Glass] You're forgettin' your place, boy. 
Hugh Glass: As far as I can tell, my place is right here on the smart end of this rifle.

Hugh Glass: I told you to be invisible, son! 
Hawk: At least he... 
Hugh Glass: If you want to survive, keep your mouth shut! 
Hawk: At least he heard me. 
Hugh Glass: They don't hear your voice! They just see the color of your face. You understand? You understand? 
Hawk: Yes.

John Fitzgerald: You all right there kid? Your head in the right place? 
Bridger: I guess... I can't help thinking about whether we did the right... 
John Fitzgerald: No! Ain't our place to wonder. The good Lord got us on a road whether we choose it or not. 
John Fitzgerald: My pop, he weren't a religious man, you know? If you couldn't grow it, kill it, or eat it, he just plain old didn't believe in it, that was it. And this one time he head on up the old Saba hills... San Saba hills? He joined a couple Texas Ranger buddies of his to hunt you know? pretty routine, he done it like a hundred times before, should have been a three-day kill but, on the second day, it all went fucked. Somehow that night he lost his buddies, and to top it off, them Comanches went and took the horses so, he was starving and delirious... and he crawls up into this mott, this... this group of trees out in the middle of nowhere just sticking up in this ocean of scrub and he found religion. At that moment he told me... he found God. And it turns out that God... He's a squirrel. Yea. A big, old meaty one. "I found God" he used to say. "And while sitting there and basking in the glory and sublimity of mercy... I shot and ate that son of a bitch”.

Hugh Glass: I ain't afraid to die anymore. I'd done it already.

John Fitzgerald: What makes you go on?

from ’The Revenant’ (2015) Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (The Aviator), Domhnall Gleeson (The Little Stranger), Forrest Goodluck (Blood Quantum), Will Poulter (The Maze Runner), Duane Howard (Pathfinder), and Tom Hardy (Bronson). Cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men). Screenplay by Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)) and Mark L. Smith (Overlord). Directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Biutiful).
Based in part on the novel by Michael Punke.


The Revenant is a 2015 American epic Revisionist Western film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu. The screenplay by Mark L. Smith and Iñárritu is based in part on Michael Punke's 2002 novel of the same name, which describes frontiersman Hugh Glass's experiences in 1823; that novel is, in turn, based on the 1915 poem The Song of Hugh Glass. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, and Will Poulter.

Development began in August 2001 when producer Akiva Goldsman purchased Punke's manuscript. Iñárritu signed on to direct The Revenant in August 2011; in April 2014, after several delays due to other projects, Iñárritu confirmed that he was beginning work on The Revenant and that DiCaprio would play the lead role. Principal photography began in October 2014. Location and crew concerns delayed the production of the film from May to August 2015.

The Revenant premiered at the TCL Chinese Theatre on December 16, 2015. It had a limited release on December 25 and a wide release on January 8, 2016. The film was a blockbuster, grossing $533 million worldwide. It received mostly positive reviews, with praise for the performances, particularly from DiCaprio and Hardy, Iñárritu's direction, and Lubezki's cinematography; however, there was slight criticism for its runtime. It won three Golden Globe Awards and five BAFTA Awards, including Best Film at both shows. At the 88th Academy Awards, the film received 12 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Hardy). The Revenant won the Academy Awards for Best Director (Iñárritu, his second consecutive in that category) Best Actor (DiCaprio, his first after 5 previous nominations) and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki). DiCaprio also won the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award, the BAFTA Award, and the Critics' Choice Award for Best Actor for his work in the film.


Hugh Glass (c. 1783 – 1833) was an American frontiersman, fur trapper, trader, hunter, and explorer. He is best known for his story of survival and forgiveness after being left for dead by companions when he was mauled by a grizzly bear.

Born in Pennsylvania to Scots-Irish parents, Glass became an explorer of the watershed of the Upper Missouri River, in present-day Montana, the Dakotas, and the Platte River area of Nebraska. His life story has been the basis of two feature-length films: Man in the Wilderness (1971) and The Revenant (2015). They both portray the survival struggle of Glass, who (in the best historical accounts) crawled and stumbled 200 miles (320 km) to Fort Kiowa, South Dakota, after being abandoned without supplies or weapons by fellow explorers and fur traders during General Ashley's expedition of 1823. Another version of the story was told in a 1966 episode of the TV series Death Valley Days, titled "Hugh Glass Meets the Bear".

Despite the story's popularity, its accuracy has been disputed. It was first recorded in 1825 in The Port Folio, a Philadelphia literary journal, as a literary piece and later picked up by various newspapers. Although originally published anonymously, it was later revealed to be the work of James Hall, brother of The Port Folio's editor. There is no writing from Hugh Glass himself to corroborate the veracity of it. Also, it is likely to have been embellished over the years as a legend.

And this one time he head on up the old Saba hills... San Saba hills? He joined a couple Texas Ranger buddies of his to hunt you know? pretty routine, he done it like a hundred times before, should have been a three-day kill but, on the second day, it all went fucked. Somehow that night he lost his buddies, and to top it off, them Comanches went and took the horses so, he was starving and delirious... and he crawls up into this mott, this... this group of trees out in the middle of nowhere just sticking up in this ocean of scrub and he found religion. At that moment he told me... he found God. And it turns out that God... He's a squirrel. Yea. A big, old meaty one. "I found God" he used to say. "And while sitting there and basking in the glory and sublimity of mercy... I shot and ate that son of a bitch”.

Hugh Glass: I ain't afraid to die anymore. I'd done it already.

John Fitzgerald: What makes you go on?

from ’The Revenant’ (2015) Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (The Aviator), Domhnall Gleeson (The Little Stranger), Forrest Goodluck (Blood Quantum), Will Poulter (The Maze Runner), Duane Howard (Pathfinder), and Tom Hardy (Bronson). Cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men). Screenplay by Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)) and Mark L. Smith (Overlord). Directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Biutiful).
Based in part on the novel by Michael Punke.


The Revenant is a 2015 American epic Revisionist Western film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu. The screenplay by Mark L. Smith and Iñárritu is based in part on Michael Punke's 2002 novel of the same name, which describes frontiersman Hugh Glass's experiences in 1823; that novel is, in turn, based on the 1915 poem The Song of Hugh Glass. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, and Will Poulter.

Development began in August 2001 when producer Akiva Goldsman purchased Punke's manuscript. Iñárritu signed on to direct The Revenant in August 2011; in April 2014, after several delays due to other projects, Iñárritu confirmed that he was beginning work on The Revenant and that DiCaprio would play the lead role. Principal photography began in October 2014. Location and crew concerns delayed the production of the film from May to August 2015.

The Revenant premiered at the TCL Chinese Theatre on December 16, 2015. It had a limited release on December 25 and a wide release on January 8, 2016. The film was a blockbuster, grossing $533 million worldwide. It received mostly positive reviews, with praise for the performances, particularly from DiCaprio and Hardy, Iñárritu's direction, and Lubezki's cinematography; however, there was slight criticism for its runtime. It won three Golden Globe Awards and five BAFTA Awards, including Best Film at both shows. At the 88th Academy Awards, the film received 12 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Hardy). The Revenant won the Academy Awards for Best Director (Iñárritu, his second consecutive in that category) Best Actor (DiCaprio, his first after 5 previous nominations) and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki). DiCaprio also won the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award, the BAFTA Award, and the Critics' Choice Award for Best Actor for his work in the film.


Hugh Glass (c. 1783 – 1833) was an American frontiersman, fur trapper, trader, hunter, and explorer. He is best known for his story of survival and forgiveness after being left for dead by companions when he was mauled by a grizzly bear.

Born in Pennsylvania to Scots-Irish parents, Glass became an explorer of the watershed of the Upper Missouri River, in present-day Montana, the Dakotas, and the Platte River area of Nebraska. His life story has been the basis of two feature-length films: Man in the Wilderness (1971) and The Revenant (2015). They both portray the survival struggle of Glass, who (in the best historical accounts) crawled and stumbled 200 miles (320 km) to Fort Kiowa, South Dakota, after being abandoned without supplies or weapons by fellow explorers and fur traders during General Ashley's expedition of 1823. Another version of the story was told in a 1966 episode of the TV series Death Valley Days, titled "Hugh Glass Meets the Bear".

Despite the story's popularity, its accuracy has been disputed. It was first recorded in 1825 in The Port Folio, a Philadelphia literary journal, as a literary piece and later picked up by various newspapers. Although originally published anonymously, it was later revealed to be the work of James Hall, brother of The Port Folio's editor. There is no writing from Hugh Glass himself to corroborate the veracity of it. Also, it is likely to have been embellished over the years as a legend.

About The Artwork

Hugh Glass: [in Pawnee] It's okay son... I know you want this to be over. I'm right here. I will be right here... But you don't give up. You hear me? As long as you can still grab a breath, you fight. You breathe... keep breathing. Andrew Henry: Is it true you killed an officer? Hugh Glass: I just killed a man who was trying to kill my son. Jones: Those pelts are stolen. Elk Dog: You all have stolen everything from us. Everything! The land. The animals. John Fitzgerald: That claw doesn't belong to you. Hikuc: My heart bleeds. But revenge is in the creator's hands. Hugh Glass: I need a horse and a gun. Andrew Henry: No, you need rest and something to eat. I'm going after him. Hugh Glass: No You'll never find him without me. Andrew Henry: Wait till morning, he'll have a day's head start and get away. Hugh Glass: No he won't. He's afraid. He knows how far I came for him. Same as that elk, when they get afraid they run deep in to the woods. I got him trapped, he just, He doesn't know it yet. Andrew Henry: How can you be so sure? Hugh Glass: Cause he has everything to lose. All I had was that boy - and he took him from me. Hawk: Can you hear the wind, father? Remember what mother used to say about the wind? The wind cannot defeat the tree with strong roots. John Fitzgerald: [to Glass] Look at me scalp. Andrew Henry: That's enough! John Fitzgerald: [to Glass] You're forgettin' your place, boy. Hugh Glass: As far as I can tell, my place is right here on the smart end of this rifle. Hugh Glass: I told you to be invisible, son! Hawk: At least he... Hugh Glass: If you want to survive, keep your mouth shut! Hawk: At least he heard me. Hugh Glass: They don't hear your voice! They just see the color of your face. You understand? You understand? Hawk: Yes. John Fitzgerald: You all right there kid? Your head in the right place? Bridger: I guess... I can't help thinking about whether we did the right... John Fitzgerald: No! Ain't our place to wonder. The good Lord got us on a road whether we choose it or not. John Fitzgerald: My pop, he weren't a religious man, you know?

I’m (I am?) a self-taught artist, originally from the north suburbs of Chicago (also known as John Hughes' America). Born in 1984, I started painting in 2017 and began to take it somewhat seriously in 2019. I currently reside in rural Montana and live a secluded life with my three dogs - Pebbles (a.k.a. Jaws, Brandy, Fang), Bam Bam (a.k.a. Scrat, Dinki-Di, Trash Panda, Dug), and Mystique (a.k.a. Lady), and five cats - Burglekutt (a.k.a. Ghostmouse Makah), Vohnkar! (a.k.a. Storm Shadow, Grogu), Falkor (a.k.a. Moro, The Mummy's Kryptonite, Wendigo, BFC), Nibbler (a.k.a. Cobblepot), and Meegosh (a.k.a. Lenny). Part of the preface to the 'Complete Works of Emily Dickinson helps sum me up as a person and an artist: "The verses of Emily Dickinson belong emphatically to what Emerson long since called ‘the Poetry of the Portfolio,’ something produced absolutely without the thought of publication, and solely by way of expression of the writer's own mind. Such verse must inevitably forfeit whatever advantage lies in the discipline of public criticism and the enforced conformity to accepted ways. On the other hand, it may often gain something through the habit of freedom and unconventional utterance of daring thoughts. In the case of the present author, there was no choice in the matter; she must write thus, or not at all. A recluse by temperament and habit, literally spending years without settling her foot beyond the doorstep, and many more years during which her walks were strictly limited to her father's grounds, she habitually concealed her mind, like her person, from all but a few friends; and it was with great difficulty that she was persuaded to print during her lifetime, three or four poems. Yet she wrote verses in great abundance; and though brought curiosity indifferent to all conventional rules, had yet a rigorous literary standard of her own, and often altered a word many times to suit an ear which had its own tenacious fastidiousness." -Thomas Wentworth Higginson "Not bad... you say this is your first lesson?" "Yes, but my father was an *art collector*, so…"
