No Half Measures: Creating the Final Season of Breaking Bad

Artless DVD-extra that eschews the observational by cutting away to expository talking heads to a fault. Which is a shame, because seeing this constructed on set and having people on that very set remark on what is going down would be enough to fill 134 minutes. Thank god the last half hour, detailing “Felina” and the “Ozymandias” teaser, does exactly that. Seeing Aaron Paul choke up as he’s professing his love for Cranston is impossibly touching, much more so than having people relay info after the fact. And for those bits of behind the scenes moments, it’s super worth its time, and it made me reappraise the series and its run as a whole.
