Raymond's Review of Silver Linings Playbook
Silver Linings Playbook(2012)
Walking a thematic tight-rope, Silver Linings Playbook largely succeeds due to the plethora of stunning performances from the whole case. Bradley Cooper stunned me with his ability for dramatic, emotional acting and Jennifer Lawrence was amazing as usual. Both got completely enveloped in their roles; they weren't actors, they became their characters. Robert De Niro gives his best performance in a long time, and Jacki Weaver blew me away. David O. Russell has crafted a masterpiece that is simply one of, if not the best, film of the year!
