American Hustle

Another overhyped movie that lacked depth in the story. It was also bemusing in the manner and quality of acting on display. Jennifer Lawrence also had a lack of depth to her acting. In fact, she did not even fit the role. Why is this woman playing adult roles when she is yet to even mature? It almost borders on strangeness. What is this weird obsession that Hollywood has with young age? Fifty something year old directors dating almost teenage/barely matured actresses not to mention starring them in roles for which thirty something are most appropriate. It really makes one wonder how such actresses get the parts in such movies to begin with. Perhaps, the lucid reality of the casting couch still perpetuates the doors of Hollywood success or the measure of it.
