Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

American Hustle

Tremendous acting and writing.  Perhaps a little over-directed, but that might have been a stylistic choice.  Probably fifteen minutes longer than it needed to be.

But Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence were absolutely fantastic.

Still, every movie set in the '70s makes me feel like I need a shower.
