In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
This is one of the special features on the DVD of The Kingdom. At 35 and a half minutes, it is the longest and most thorough of the bunch. It is a making-of documentary, and it consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage and clips from the film. Since this covers numerous different areas of the production of the movie, it is divided into 8 chapters(though for the sake of the lazy couch potatoes in the audience, there is, in fact, a Play All button). Everyone who talks has something to say(and they're not only the typical talking heads, there are bits of them from on the set and such), and this contains several great, memorable anecdotes. This goes over just about everything one might expect it to, and is concise, entertaining and informative. I particularly enjoyed listening to Ashraf Barhom(this guy has *got* to get more work, he is impeccable), and Bateman is hilarious(with that said, I can imagine that those who dislike him will find him irritating here; I haven't seen him in much of anything). There is occasional strong language in this. I recommend this to anyone who think highly of the picture itself. 8/10
