Movie Review: SAG does the 'Hustle'

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Irving Rosenfeld has a comb-over like you wouldn't believe.

We get to see Irving, played by Christian Bale, meticulously prepare his coif before be attends an important meeting.

That opening scene is worth the price of admission to "American Hustle."

And that's not to take away from the many hilarious, heart-rending and wild scenes in the crime caper comedy directed by David O. Russell ("Silver Linings Playbook," 2012).
