If American Hustle does, however, live up to the hype, it will complete a trifecta of successful movies, and will propel O Russell to another level of respect; a separate pantheon of directors.
“I was very fortunate to get The Fighter. And that became the first chapter in all the work I’m doing right now… Silver Linings, to me, was another chapter of a similar world. Of people, and a family, and a community, and a home, who speak a certain way and who are very emotional and very intense, in ways that I find fascinating,” he explained to ET in a video interview. “The new movie, American Hustle, is a third chapter of that, to me. It’s the biggest world in a way.”
With such a skilled director at the helm and a group of incredible actors, who have all forged a working relationship with their auteur, American Hustle is looking like it’ll be one of the success stories of 2013.
