'American Hustle' Video Interviews: David O. Russell Fuels His Movie on Character and Music

Dec 20, 2013 | 10:22am EST

Director David O. Russell casts a bright light on the glitz and grime of '70s era New York with his latest film, American Hustle. While the big hair and flashy suits that dot his work could have easily outshone its story about a couple of con men hoping to scam their way to the top, he doesn't forget to examine the people hidden under all that disco-era pastiche.

We got a chance to sit down with David O. Russell and talk about how his affections for the film's setting and characters guide his vision when he directs, and how a mutual love of music and culture helps to shape the character relationships of American Hustle.
