Hustlers ★★★★½

“we were fucking hurricanes, weren’t we”

not a joke in the slightest: this is one of the best films of the year. a movie with a premise like this could have been made in a million horrible ways, but this is a perfect example of how good something can be when treated just right. it’s engaging from the first scene until the cut to black. everyone is a star player, j-lo is ridiculously great and even cardi b and miss riverdale bring comedic moments that land every time. and the whole thing is tied up in a plot so warm that i’m genuinely taken aback. you have to see this thing for yourself
