In particular the film attempts to peer inside the world of con artists in a similar fashion as Goodfellas did with the mob, with a great deal of similarities shared between the two films.
For a plot-driven film, American Hustle also contains a vast amount of very richly sketched characters, which is very rare these days.
O'Russell doesn't let it get too convoluted or step on the character's toes however which is why this film worked so well for me.
