AMERICAN HUSTLE is eight-track entertainment from the feet up - exposing the question, "What is façade and what is for real?" With no detail overlooked, no hair out of place, David O. Russell's masterful period piece wires audiences into the exhilarating cons of Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper. Enter Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner, with all players playing against type, and you have a tale of ambition that is rollicking and emotionally raw - and an anthem to the notion that the art of survival is a story that never ends.
