The first industry showing of David O. Russell‘s Amsterdam (20th Century, 10.7) happened this evening at Ross House, the swanky Mt. Olympus screening facility. A mesmerizing and amusing you-tell-me (I wasn’t there)…an all-star 1930s mystery shuffle, nervy and comedic and an attitude “ride” in every conceivable sense….a hyper hellzapoppin’ involving several plot threads and many characters.
Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoe Saldaña, Mike Myers, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Andrea Riseborough, Taylor Swift, Matthias Schoenaerts, Alessandro Nivola, Rami Malek and Robert De Niro.
The post-screening discussion was between Russell, Bale and director Adam McKay.
Producer Matthew Budman announced that Amsterdam will have a big screening “next week” (presumably between 9.19 and 9.9.23) at Manhattan’s Alice Tully Hall.
