American Hustle

Let's leave the year behind us with a good movie.   Better still, let's see a good movie with bad hairstyles.

The 70s were an interesting time in American history, but the hair and clothing styles were so out-there that they seem to be all we remember of the period.   But in the post-Watergate period, there was a political scandal that included the purchase of some members of Congress (for those who lived through the period, that would be Abscam).

American Hustle comes from director David O. Russell, who brought us Silver Linings Playbook, Three Kings, and The Fighter.   He's one of America's most interesting directors, and many critics are suggesting that this is his best.    On Rotten Tomatoes, this movie has a score of 95%, which is pretty rare for a mainstream movie.

There are many decent restaurants within a three-minute walk from the theater, so come hungry, and don't eat popcorn.

    This movie took us back to the 70's; it was fun. We were glad to join those remaining for dinner and discussions afterward. Look forward to seeing you all again. Happy New Year!

    Planning on getting back from Palm Desert in time for this one! Curt - I want to ask you about your take on the enigma of John Goodman's driver in 'Llewyn'. I couldn't stay after and there was so much to talk about!
