Easily the biggest piece of Right wing non sense propaganda I ever saw.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.

"A World Unseen: The Revenant" is a 44minute live action documentary from January 2016, so this one is almost a year old. It was made by Eliot Rausch and features interviews with Leonardo DiCaprio and Alejandro G. Iñárritu and other people somewhat (not so) close to the production of the very successful "The Revenant". The focus here is on many issues, maybe too many to deal with adequately for a film under 45 minutes. One of them would be the discrimination against Native Americans and this is a core component (probably the core component) in the second half of this one. However, I cannot say I am convinced by the outcome here. The film does seem pretentious at times and it also seems to take itself too seriously. There is nothing new we learn from this one. And most of the time it felt like empty phrases to me. Yes these phrases may sure sound important, but they lack the sincerity I think. It's like hearing "we need to change things" five times, but not hearing once what we actually have to change. Somehow it also did not feel so great how the connections between "The Revenant" and this one here were used after all. Yes it is a subject in the Oscar-winning film, but I somehow felt as if the people in here qualified themselves as experts or even scientists on the subject. I think the message this film sends is a good one, but the execution in detail is far from being a quality achievement. I felt it was very contrived and basically all scripted sadly. Not recommended.
Director Eliot Rausch has done an excellent job bringing us the short documentary 'A World Unseen: The Revenant', introducing us to the production process of 'The Revenant', along with a commentary from the Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who speaks both for the movie's production with all its ups and downs, and also for a bigger problem related to global warming and how the native American population is slowly being banished from its own lands. Leonardo DiCaprio also spoke of the tough process that he had to go through in order to entirely fit his character's demeanor and view towards the nature surrounding him. The main message of this documentary is not to give us the making insides of the movie, but to show us the bigger picture and what actually happens with our planet's nature.
