What a hustle! I could barely keep up with who’s conning who. ‘American Hustle’ walked a fine line between comedy and drama. It definitely had a good mix. I had to wonder whether I should laugh or not. But I opted to laugh most of the time. The costumes for the 70′s era were spot on. And so were the hairstyles. Irving Rosenfeld’s (Christian Bale) comb over was priceless!
This film was certainly entertaining from the beginning to the very end. I’m usually not a fan of period pieces but I overlooked it this time. The acting in this film helped me forget it was set in the 70′s. This is a fictional movie, but director David O. Russell sold it like it really went down.
