American Hustle ★★

This has to be one of the dullest, most boring crime movies I’ve ever watched. 

I mean, yes, it has some truly outstanding performances (Christian Bale is a fucking force and the only thing that got me through it), and features a killer soundtrack (Donna Summer, Elton John and the theme to Live and Let Die!?), but all in all this has confirmed for me that I do not like David O. Russell films, and I need to stop trying to force myself to.

That said, I did enjoy the opening scene where Christian Bale applies his comb over, which is what I imagine Donald Trump does every morning.

“Christian, I hate plots. I am all about characters, that's it.”
