David O Russell has a talent, which you cannot reasonably deny. Directing some truly outstanding previous projects, such as Three Kings, The Fighter and to a lesser extent, last years’ Oscar darling Silver Linings Playbook, you know that when you’re introduced to a new film from this director, that it is going to be something special.
Going by the trailer, this looks genuinely intriguing. If something can make me smile within the first ten seconds, it must be doing something right. The story of a lonely, awkward writer that doesn’t like to socialise? Can’t imagine why I would like that. At all..
What? Why are you looking at me like that?
