NJ Mayor in ‘American Hustle' Left Complex Legacy

american hustle mayor

CAMDEN, N.J. - In "American Hustle," a highly fictionalized telling of the bizarre Abscam FBI corruption sting of the 1970s, the public official on the take is the most selfless character. In the film, which opened Friday, Camden Mayor Carmine Polito turns down a briefcase full of money when he is first offered a bribe. The character, based on real-life Mayor Angelo Errichetti and played by Jeremy Renner, later agrees to accept the money because he believes doing so would lead to job production and help residents. Those who knew him and have studied the long-troubled city agree Errichetti was deeply concerned for his constituents but has... more

Movie Review: '47 Ronin'

reeves 47 ronin

LOS ANGELES - In Japan, the story of the 47 ronin is so central to the country's national identity that a special word exists for the act of retelling it: Chushingura. But despite this long tradition of flexible reinterpretation, the Hollywood-backed "47 Ronin" takes such liberties with the underlying legend that a different term comes to mind, one better suited to American actor Keanu Reeves' involvement: "bogus." So far, Japanese audiences have been slow to embrace a CG-heavy version of the story that offers Keanu as a previously unsung "half-breed" accomplice. Meanwhile, domestic crowds are being deliberately misled to think he's the st... more

Movie Review: ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’

secret life of walter mitty movie

LOS ANGELES - Marketed as Ben Stiller's bend toward drama, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" finds the actor, who also directed the feature, seemingly exuding super-human strength while jumping between buildings and battling his nemesis as they surf asphalt. The lampoon-like scenarios seem far too fanciful when attempting to take Stiller seriously. But these are just the narratives the title character weaves in his mind. In reality, Walter Mitty, played by a poised and sincere Stiller, is an insecure photo editor with an affinity for daydreaming. Adapted from a short story of the same name, which was written by James Thurber and was publ... more

Movie Review: ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’

LOS ANGELES - Digging into deep-pocket gluttony, Martin Scorsese's dark comedy "The Wolf of Wall Street" highlights a world rich in drugs, fast cars and private jets. The American dream is amplified, yet those indulging in it are never satisfied. In the film's opening segment, trading tycoon Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, declares, "Money is the best drug. It makes you a better person." This was the motto fueling a host of hustling stockbrokers in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and it sets the tone for Scorsese's commentary on the extravagance of our twisted financial culture. As we've seen in his films "Goodfellas" and "C... more

Movie Review: ‘Grudge Match’

grudge match de niro stallone

LOS ANGELES - Sylvester Stallone returns to the well of fan fiction by teaming with his onetime iconic-onscreen-pugilist rival, Robert De Niro, in "Grudge Match." Essentially recasting "Grumpy Old Men" with the senescent specters of Rocky Balboa and Jake LaMotta, the result is sporadically amusing, with some chuckles, sight gags and crowd-pleasing supporting turns from Alan Arkin and Kevin Hart. Yet it's all so overcooked that it defeats its own purpose. Hollywood frequently rummaging through its creative dumpster for never-ending sequels and remakes, but the latter-day careers of Stallone and De Niro are special cases indeed, with the tw... more
