The Grey by Joe Carnahan, 2012 (R)

with Liam Neeson (Love Actually, The Other Man, The Next Three Days, Chloe), Frank Grillo (Warrior), Dermot Mulroney (August: Osage County, J. Edgar), Dallas Roberts (Dallas Buyers Club), Joe Anderson (Amelia), Nonso Anozie, James Badge Dale (Shame), Ben Bray, Anne Openshaw

After narrowly surviving a deadly plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness, a band of oil riggers lead by Ottway (Liam Neeson) must fend for their lives in the ice and snow. But thanks to wolves that view their presence as a threat, they aren't alone.

There is about this movie a strong idea of what is life and death. The poem the father of Ottway wrote describes their journey in a few words: "Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I'll ever know. Live and die on this day. Live and die on this day." Survival is not the only option, when faced with the reality of death. The movie puts us in circumstances where there is no more worthiness than living in the moment, appreciative of what you have. The acting is excellent, the realism of the scenes is terrifying, suffocating or painless, beautiful. Intelligent.
