Critics reviews

Compared to Iñárritu’s much-hyped portrayal [The Revenant], Sarafian’s 1971 telling is the more satisfying of the two movies. Man in the Wilderness is leaner and more direct, and its psyche-providing flashbacks are more intelligently deployed than Iñárritu’s magic realism. Shot by cinematographer Gerry Fisher, the movie is also beautiful in its own right.
