This is the last of the series of four featurettes(six total, but the remaining two do not have pages here on the site) on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of Casino, and thus the one with credits. It consists of interviews, clips of the movie, pans and such across still photos and behind the scenes footage. They go into all that comes after filming is over... post-production, carried by the talented, long-time editor of Scorsese, Thelma Schoonmaker, release, complete with the original reception, and awards, that Stone very deservedly won. It's paced nicely, at nine informative minutes that cover a nice amount, and not really boring at any point. Everyone has something to say, and Pileggi, for example, is always cool to listen to. This has some pretty funny moments, too. At the end of this documentary, Martin talks about the relationship between working in the medium and money, big and small budgets alike, what the situation is and whether or not it will change. There is no real objectionable material in this, as far as I can tell. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the subject. 7/10
