Lately I've been going through some of the Martin Scorsese films (or crime films in general) I haven't seen for one reason or another. Casino was one of those 'you haven't seen that yet' films and I finally had some time to sit down and watch it.
I thought the film was a little more typical of late-Scorsese: loses its way at the end, overlong and far more style over substance. To some this is blasphemy, and while the film was never boring, it didn't resonant with me on any emotional level (just like how I felt in Scorsese's The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street, other true-story epics Scorsese tackled).
The production value was phenomenal so I thought I'd dedicate a Cinematography Of ... post to it.
I rounded these up from all over the web but most specifically from Screen Musings. Check them out.
