American Hustle, 2013.
Directed by David O. Russell.
A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive British partner, Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild FBI agent, Richie Dimaso. Dimaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia.

Great performances, silly wigs, camp 70s outfits, several laughs, and a killer soundtrack are peppered throughout the film meaning there is always something to enjoy visually or audibly. However, the film is turns out to be nothing more than just fun, and struggles to hold the attention, often weighed down by attempts at being something it clearly is not.
Based partly on actual events, the film tries to tell the story of an FBI sting operation to catch Us officials taking bribes in an operatic style with five central characters, »
