David O. Russell has become one of my favorite directors and he doesn't disappoint this time either. The movie has great characters that you care about with a top-notch performance from the entire cast
The movie was really good and quite a spectacle but also confusing. I hadn't read the book beforehand but watched it with someone that had, and that definitely helped understanding many aspect and relationships in the movie.
I had high hopes for this movie, even with a terrible title, but I was rather disappointed. The plot is quite similar to a movie like The Untouchables and while watching this, I was just eager to come home and watch The Untouchables instead.
