Silver Linings Playbook

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro

Directed by David O. Russell

Rated R


David O. Russell likes to deal in the absurd.  Whether it’s something obvious (Flirting With Disaster) or hidden under a subject that is a little more serious (Three Kings), it’s always there.  That absurdity is what makes him such a unique voice in filmmaking today.  And while his career is closing in on 20 years, Silver Linings Playbook is only his 6th movie.  But he makes each movie count (even the incredibly wobbly I Heart Huckabees).  Playbook is all kinds of crazy… and absurd… but that’s literally the point.  Whether it’s the kind of crazy that gets you sent to a hospital or the kind that people accept as just your idiosyncratic routine, Playbook give it to you in bundles.  That is also the pure joy of this film, »
