I can't, not for the life of me, understand how anyone could want to see this film. It just looks like the latest in a rly fucking enormously long line of boring middle-brow Oscar bait, and far from the best of that bunch too. If the price I have to pay for seeing this nominated for no Oscars (maybe save Cate Blanchett and Alexandre Desplat) is to see American Hustle win dozens of them, I'm almost ready to pay it, through the motherfucking nose if I have to. But hey, remember what happened last time George Clooney and Cate Blanchett the last time they visited 1940's Germany? Answer: a film basically nobody liked except me. 18/12 US, 09/01 UK.
