  • For some, the silver linings in Russell’s movies represent a failure to embrace darkness. I see them as a humanist’s act of resistance. That’s why American Hustle ranks with the year’s best movies. It gets under your skin. show more

  • American Hustle is David O. Russell's best film, one that finds him in that ideal zone of spontaneity and complete control. show more

  • With one of the best ensemble casts of any film this year, it's audacious, enthralling and uproarious. show more

    Loved this movie. Enjoyed every aspect. The cast, the acting, the music, the clothes and hair styles. Could really relate to the late 1970's era...Great acting and script . A must see movie . I intend to watch it again .!

    Even though some of the nominations are well deserved, the story in general in not good. Especially the ending, it was weak. You can skip this one nothing new here.

    Surprisingly, I enjoyed this movie a lot more than I thought I would. Fun to watch and great soundtrack.
