Gangster Squad cast and crew talks about the film's style. Slightly interesting
19 November 2016 | by Rodrigo_AmaroSee all my reviews

Behind the scenes from "Gangster Squad" but with a close focus into the movie's style when it comes to fashion, how men were tough and women were classy in the 1940's-1950's era. Featuring interviews with the film's director, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Josh Brolin, costume designer Mary Zophres and others. Cool stuff, right? Sort of.

Not bad-mouthing or making it less from the short, but I think their opinions are just pure cliché seen in similar projects, not much sense of gripping realism. And if the idea was to show a behind the scenes with style approach only, it's be better if only Zophres was part of the show along with research people, art directors and even film critics who understand how that golden era truly was. I wanted to know more about visual representations of colors that such and such actor wear, those choices for such character. But I liked the story about Emma's fabulous dress in that first scene of hers.

So, in terms of bonus material it was okay. Only wasted its chance of becoming something more due to its limited overview in just something one topic instead of making a full behind the scenes including actors and technical personnel telling about the making of the movie. Minor harm, but enjoyable anyway. 6/10
