Silver Linings play book fame David O Rusell comes up with fictional story based on abscam in US. He laced the crime story with playful humor and 70’s style. He did an awesome job as the director. The screenplay is too gripping. Cinematographer is just focused on the characters,It is nice. Music fits very well with scenes. Editing is too good. There are too many catchy dialogues Production values are good.
Christian bale is outstanding as con man, He looks so flabby, look at his acting skills in the machinist he looked so lean in that film.He moulds his body according to the character, kudos to his commitment. Bradely is just brilliant as hot headed FBI agent. He tickels the funny bone of audience in few scenes. Amy adams is amazing, Jennifer lawerence stole the show she did an awesome job. the rest of the cast has done an impressive job.
Watch it for the jaw dropping lead cast performances.
