Although most reviews said that American Hustle boiled high on music and low on acting and the other, clearly the wrong stereotype about that just aint true. The film rates all of the way around and high at that. The music raved and the clever and ingenious acting rated even much more high than that. A few con artists of the male and female nature, forced to work a group of stings for the F.B.I. after they get caught working a sting of their own, his air and his confidence ~ He was who he was and he didn’t care. Like some, she came from a place where her options were limited. “She knew she had to reinvent herself.” The mirror reflection of the two wives of the leading crime man played by Christian Bale (Irving Rosenfeld: Melvin Weinberg), clearly the man loved both sides of one wife. But had a hard time deciding which wife he wanted, and like some personality long since gone split he wants a wife whose good and responsible and who needs him, and he wants a wife who plays him and wants someone else all of the time. Secretly terrified to go on living, and as a wrinkle in time, and yet he felt as she. The only one in the world he could tell the woman who actually got Duke Ellington too. So it was that the same woman who learned how to knit from Meryl Streep and who got her first big part after Kirstie Allen (Cheers) took her under her wing. And follows the film closely when you watch though as to miss a second means a slipknot away from understanding the method and the grace and the timing of the whole sting. A series of short, brief and quickly planned times meant to put away some bad guys may go right or wrong depending on who does what. Only the story has the surprise. The film far from boring, although the music is a great and good Kashmir, true, the many twists and turns which define starting over. And just like the three kidnapped women found shut away…some of us who do manage to go on, rally around a lot of the dynamic of a more original stratus, not all that much too disimilar than the creative strategy Led Zeppelin portained to design, package & sell a record album. Rated R.
