Looking fwd to this one...might do the book first.
I read the book a couple months ago. I liked it a lot, but for some reason the writing didn't draw me in as much as I thought it would. It's one of those rare scenarios though where the material is so interesting that the book still turned out to be a good read.
And I see where some folks get info these days....seriously.
The bear rape story was put to rest when someone read a script long time ago.He was mauled.
Yet the entertainment columnist Roger Friedman, in describing the movie, noted "that the bear flips Glass over on his belly and molests him – dry humps him actually – as he nearly devours him."
Inarritu decided that a naked character should be dragged along the ground. The director remembers being concerned about the actor's genitals and laying down plastic sheeting to protect him. "I asked him several times, 'Are you fine?' " says Inarritu. Each time he asked, he says the actor replied that he was prepared to try another take. "I was super considerate because he was a nice, 22-year-old guy," says Inarritu. While crewmembers say the actor was in pain, Inarritu dismisses that as "a lie."
