AFI Fest unveiled the first six minutes of ‘American Hustle’
David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” is one of the last major players in this year’s awards season to be unveiled publicly, but an audience at the AFI Fest in Hollywood got a look at the first six minutes of the movie at the end of a tribute to Russell on Friday night.
And what was showcased in the opening sequence was certainly eye-catching. For starters, there was an elaborate comb-over operation so meticulously performed by Christian Bale that even Donald Trump might learn a thing or two from it.
And there was a neckline on Amy Adams’ dress so plunging that it figures to finish the job of obliterating her good-girl image, which Russell started when he cast her as a tough-talking Boston barmaid in “The Fighter” three years ago.
