Despite the talk of over budgeting, squabbles and tension throughout the making of the film, we have a beautifully harsh looking film all thanks to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. The Oscar winning Cinematographer certainly looks like he’s onto another winner opting for natural light of brutal surroundings delivering a sense of realism. This is a time before the lightbulb, battery or even Kerosene lamps where created, even DiCaprio a well known Vegetarian also lived as a character which saw him eat raw Bison liver!
