In what is hoped to be a seasonal tradition, there's a new film this week from David O. Russell to follow last year's Christmas release of Silver Linings Playbook. To date, every promotional still of American Hustle, every frame of every clip and every trailer has an anticipation-firing frisson you rarely get from movies aimed at adult audiences: spot-on '70s stylings; Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence on smoking form; Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper better just in this trailer than in all of their previous films; hair curlers on women and hair curlers on men; and Electric Light Orchestra on the soundtrack.
