Hustlers ★★★

Jennifer Lopez and writer-director Lorene Scafaria own Hustlers. Lopez gets an iconic character entrance, doing pole gymnastics to Fiona Apple, bathing in money, following her striptease with a cigarette on top of the roof of the strip club lounging back in her fur coat, and then offering her fur coat for warmth to the new girl (Constance Wu) like a mama bear. Close to that height, there's a cameo by Usher playing Usher in that time he went to Scores' with his entourage and got all the strippers out on the stage to rain money to "I Want to Make Love (In This Club)". But Hustlers is all fun and games until 2008 crashed Wall Street and the money dried up and the strippers turned into Russian tricks. And this is where Hustlersgets really interesting, less in the plot points, but in Scafaria's directorial flexes.
