The Grey — A Philosophy of Heroic Suffering

At the time of its release, the film The Grey received mixed reviews, partially due to its marketing campaign, which suggested a more action-packed film, and also for its inaccurate portrayal of wolves. In this video essay, Like Stories of Old argues that these criticisms fail to see that the film is actually about the human will in a time of suffering. What sets The Grey apart from other survival films is its stress on the importance of finding meaning in desperate situations.
