American Hustle (2013)David O. Russell Film Reviews Film Vlog Films 2013
You can say David O. Russell’s American Hustle is the All American film due to its themes of success, survival, and dreams. And of course, in high-powered American fashion, Russell constructs a incredibly razor sharp screenplay that spits fire in the perspective of his different protagonists that is deliriously intoxicating through its super-charged performances, screenplay, and editing. Russell’s ability to infuse serious themes with outrageously humorous dialogue not only propels the performances of his individual actors but his own “auteur” voice shines through and speaks aloud with uncanny clarity. All aspects of this film is of innovative and top notch quality, but it is the individualized rambunctious and powerhouse performances provided by every single cast member even down to an extra that propels the film to be one of Russell’s best.
