American Hustle

If you can’t see the con, you’re the mark.

Everyone is selling something questionable in a fizzy tale of deception, every action and word in the service of potential scams.

A who’s-who cast of contemporary stars gets to marinate in late ’70s fashion, delivering dialogue which zips, curls, and ultimately stings.

You have FBI agents trying to run cons on corrupt politicians, and then you have true grifters, people like Christian Bale’s world-weary pro.

They’ve seen it all, done it all, and fully expect to stroll out the door at the end of the day, your wallet in their pocket.
