‘American Hustle’ Review: It's grifters vs. feds in a sexy, hilarious and vivid triumph

Email

I am loath to compare any movie to Martin Scorsese’s 1991 masterpiece “GoodFellas,” one of the most singularly vibrant films in the history of cinema. In the case of “American Hustle,” however, I will say that this latest triumph from director and co-writer David O. Russell has the kind of throbbing pulse, wicked snap and sheer moviemaking bravado that makes it one of a very few films that can be mentioned in the same breath as that earlier classic.
