America’s “Mother Road,” stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles, was the first of its kind in many respects.

When it was officially commissioned in 1926, Route 66 included 2,448 miles of road. And even though only 800 of those miles were paved, it still served as the nation’s primary junction between the east and west.

Man vs. nature. Man vs. man. Man vs. self. These outer and inner conflicts inhabit every moment in “The Revenant,” director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s cinematic tour de force.
