Renowned liberal journalist Max Lerner once said, "History is written by the survivors." In this spirit, director David O. Russell's fictionalized version of the Abscam congressional scandal of the late 1970s and early '80s is itself a cinematic hustle. Indeed, it's fitting that the title of screenwriter Eric Warren Singer's original spec script was American Bullshit.
