Throughout the film, DiCaprio makes it clear that he is extremely focused on helping to create a change in the modern world. He acts as though he has finally found a cause that he must fight for and reveal to his fans. As he explains his childhood, he reminds us that we all have a purpose on this earth that is starting to bear the consequences of its mass population. It seems as though DiCaprio's acting in The Revenant revealed the importance of reversing climate change.
Masterfully interviewing multiple sources, DiCaprio guides us through the corruption in the American political system when it comes to creating policies. Political figures often misguide the population because of their funding sources. After the last presidential election, it has become clear that there is corruption in our political system. We have been led to believe that corruption does not exist in democracy, but we are finally seeing that there are still flaws in America's leading ideologies. Clips of politicians constantly dodging the fact that climate change is real portrays the point of DiCaprio's journey. It is time to stand up against these climate change deniers and fight to reverse the effects of climate change so that we can preserve our world for future generations.
The Bottom Line: DiCaprio's powerful message strikes against common misconceptions relating to the survival of our world.
