David O. Russell is one of the finest directors currently working. He’s also know to be a bit of a hot head. Having placed George Clooney in a headlock and verbally assaulted multiple A-list actors, Russell is beginning to be know as much for his films as for his offscreen antics.
Never the less, Russell’s latest film American Hustle looks to be a pitch perfect period piece with an all star cast and a killer narrative.
The film is a loose fictionalization of the real life Abscam debacle. The film stars Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, and Jennifer Lawrence as well as a host of other talent.
The aspect of the film that has me the most excited is the design. It actually looks and feels like a period piece. Lately, the movies that have been set in any time period other than now feel like they’re just taking place five years ago instead of twenty. American Hustle Looks spot on in everyday. I’m very excited to watch it.
