- David O. Russell
- Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper
A smart and savvy con man and his slick and sexy partner are forced to work for an unpredictable FBI agent in the enticing and volatile world of the 1970s Jersey Mafia. David O. Russell’s sharp storytelling, when combined with the dressings of the opulent world of organized crime and polyester, makes for one great looking crime drama. Performances by Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and the ever-admirable Jennifer Lawrence pull Russell’s whip-smart script into the realm of cinematic genius. “American Hustle is the best time I’ve had at the movies all year, a movie so perfectly executed, such wall-to-wall fun, so filled with the joy of expert filmmaker on every level I can’t imagine anyone who loves movies not loving THIS movie.” (Richard Roeper) Awarded Best Picture of 2013 by the New York Film Critics Circle.
