This is one of the six featurettes(four of them having their own pages here on IMDb) on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of Casino, and, well, you can tell from the title what it goes into. It consists of interviews, clips of the movie inter-cut with them, and behind the scenes footage. This is all edited remarkably well, with the bits from the film itself responding directly to what is said at several points, making it a lot more dynamic and interesting. The pacing is spot-on, this never stands still, without being overwhelmingly fast, either. Pileggi tells us about how the actual person that DeNiro plays came to be more forthcoming, and details about the countless excellent lines of dialog. Scorsese admits that the picture is similar to Goodfellas, and talks about the amount of narrators in it. In 8 short minutes, this tells you a good deal of information about its specific area, meaning, the plot and how it's told. There is strong language in this, though even for how short it is, it's not very much at all. Marvelous documentary. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the subject. 7/10
