American Hustle

American Hairstyle, more like.

Which actually tells you what you need to know from me – the extravagance of the various coiffure arrangements had me entranced to the point where I wasn’t fully engaging with the film. The obsession with hair, nails, gold chains and revealing cleavage was reminiscent of a fancy dress party rather than authentic mood-setting.

I mean, there is a decent-enough heist story in there, I enjoyed Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence’s performances (even though she is really too young for the role) and there’s a great soundtrack.

It’s just that I don’t understand why it’s being talked about so much for awards. But then, I felt the same about Silver Linings Playbook last year, so what do I know?
