One of the past year's most acclaimed and honored movies reunites director and co-writer David O. Russell with several actors he's worked with before, including Christian Bale and Amy Adams of "The Fighter" and Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper of "Silver Linings Playbook."
The seriocomic story's springboard is the Abscam scandal, with Cooper as an FBI agent who recruits a con-artist team (Bale, Adams) to help bring down corrupt politicians. Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K. and Elisabeth Rohm also appear. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; deleted and extended scenes. **** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
