Why I Loved "American Hustle" (2013)

I talk about this movie often for many reasons. @HaveSomeKoco this is why I dug it
  1. 1.
    I saw the movie on a trip back home in Philly. So I'm already in good spirits
  2. 2.
    I saw this movie with my father
  3. 3.
    The characters reminded me of every 1970's New York character actor. I live for that style and time period of acting. Big and subtle at the same time.
    Talking the Pelham 1 2 3, Dog day afternoon, Network etc etc. All big characters!
  4. 4.
    The bigness of it.
    The colors. The music. The clothes.
  5. 5.
    I don't think he ripped Martin Scorsese off
    Sydney (Amy Adams) talks about becoming another person to survive. To take on the style. I always thought the movie looked like a Scorsese film as a way of saying "I'm becoming this other thing to survive. Like Duke Ellington. Like these characters." Might be a stretch, but I dig it.
