    This is THEE MOST ego-maniacal film of the decade. Scammers congratulating scammers on a film about scamming each other. That’s not a stretch…THAT’S HOLLYWOOD…day-in and day-out.

    I KNEW this was going to be David O. Russell’s year!!! And Jennifer Lawrence proves her Oscar was no fluke by being brilliant yet AGAIN. And good for FRUITVALE STATION, one of the most devastating films of ANY year. GREAT choices.
