2013 Best Cameo Winner

American Hustle

12-29-2013AmericanHustle

Part of what makes American Hustle interesting is that it is largely a film without villains.  Most of the lead characters are technically criminals, but they aren’t monsters.  Part of what keeps this in perspective is this brief appearance by Robert De Niro, who plays a gangster who’s never disposed of a body because he thinks bodies left in the street leave more of a message.  He’s the kind of evil force that Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner aren’t, and that puts their actions into perspective.
