Alejandro González Iñárritu, the director of a much awaited Hollywood project, The Revenant, has described the filming experience of the movie as "harrowing". The spine-chilling temperature, the bulging budget and the freezing water came to provide the crew members with an experience of hell. 

Leonardo DiCaprio will be seen playing one of the most extreme and agonising roles he has ever played in his Hollywood career. Leo has played the role of a frontiersman who is planning to avenge the character played by Tom Hardy who left him to die after a bear mauling.

Leo has a lot more to tell about the experience of his life.
