Watch This: 45-Min 'The Revenant' Making Of Doc - 'A World Unseen'
"The poet might know what he wanted to write, but he will never know what he wrote…" Whether or not you like the film, Iñárritu's The Revenant is an example of filmmaking at its finest. The intense attention-to-detail, filming only with natural light at the right time of the day (and the cinematography of Emmanuel Lubezki), the amount of work that went into making it, the performances, it's all extraordinary. To celebrate this achievement, 20th Century Fox has released an extensive 45-minute documentary about the making of the film that they say uncovers "the parallel between the lost era and its relevance for our world today." If you truly want to appreciate how hard it was to make this film, and get a glimpse into the process of making a feature film, this is a must-see documentary. Plus it's fascinating to hear so much from Iñárritu directly.
