My my my. This is David O. Russell's (The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook) work for this year, and the first look indicates it may very well be his best. A murderously solid cast (in addition to Bale and Cooper, there's also Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, Robert DeNiro, aaaand Louis CK), and a punch that's remiscent of Scorcese's effort this year in the Leo starring frat-boy-meets-Park-Avenue Wolf of Wall Street.
This hits you. It hits you hard.
