American Hustle – Haiku Review

MANIC ENERGY

Intense actors going ham

Hard to catch a breath

 

Bale especially

As a slouching, fat con man

Sinks into his role

 

Cooper talks fastest

Chews scenery with vigor

Gots the crazy eyes

 

Adams wins with range

Ecstatic joy to despair

Drama in person

 

Lawrence gets the laughs

Such a natural charmer

Dumb blonde with panache

 

Women combined

Could out-crazy Gaddhafi

Reckless emotion

 

Artful crazy though!

No lack of quiet moments

And intelligence

 

These are smart people

Stuck in a situation

Where ambition wins

 

Down the rabbit hole

You wonder how it will end

Or when it will end

 

Deeper and deeper

Short cons wrapped up in long cons

Love affairs galore

 

It’s funny as hell

In a very tragic way

The Greeks would approve

 

Can’t really quibble

Three narrators might be much

Lawrence seems too young

 

Overall: So good

Just a solid piece of film

Oscars are assured

 

And if you want skin

You’ll find it in abundance

Ladies almost nude

 

Kind of a problem:

My eyes went straight to the boobs

Much to my chagrin

 

Amazing acting

Stellar, award-winning roles

I’m staring at tits
