‘American Hustle’ New Trailer

Pretty saucy new trailer from ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ director David O. Russell. The film is based on a 1970’s FBI sting that ended up actually jailing some members of Congress, the Senate and a few other ne’er-do-wells of the political stripe. Perhaps its time for a new sting?

Oh, that’s right, they’re all too big to jail now. At any rate, the scumbags that run the FBI used a scumbag of a con-man to bribe a bunch of scumbag politicians, where they ended up doing what politicians do best. That being to sell their souls at the first hint of cash.

It will be interesting to see Mr. Russell put his formidable creative skills to work in this period piece. If the trailer is any indicator, it looks as if he’ll have another nice hit on his hands.

It’s good to see that there is still ample room for unique voices in this crowded world of re-boot, re-hash executive run trash.
