What a great fuckin’ movie. End of review.

Just kidding. I’ll babble more, but what the hell does anyone really want in a movie review anyway?

I don’t want spoilers. I just want assurances that I’m not wasting my time, my valuable life on something second rate. There’s a lot of second and third rate bullshit hyped to the max out there.

Luckily for you American Hustle is the real deal. I can’t count the times I laughed my ass off. Same with Wolf of Wall Street. Scorsese and David O’ Russell are the top American masters working today. They have a drive to see more in a movie, and they shoot more, write more, twist those expectations and put it all on the line.

I think I would have given the Oscar to DiCaprio out of the pack. Admittedly there are numerous films and particularly foreign offerings I didn’t catch. But of the nominees, DiCaprio for Wolf. Best picture 12 Years a Slave. Best screenplay American Hustle. Lots of good stuff in 2013; don’t believe the naysayers.

Up next… Gravity.

American Hustle: (fuck it) 5/5
