Just how insane was filming The Revenant? Between a constant battle against hypothermia and choking down real raw bison liver, bringing Alejandro Iñárritu’s epic to the big screen was no easy feat. Leonardo DiCaprio has called it the most difficult film of his career.
On the plus side, the mega-movie is getting major Oscar buzz, with many predicting this will finally be the year Leo takes the Best Actor statuette. In preparation for the Academy Awards, 20th Century Fox have released A World Unseen, a 40-minute documentary chronicling the highs and lows of creating The Revenant.
The documentary is can’t-miss material if you enjoyed the film. Interviews with Iñárritu and DiCaprio appear throughout, along with commentary from the production team and the historians who fleshed out the film’s background. Watch it and you’ll never complain about a winter again.
