I have to agree with the reviewer who gave it an 8. I give it a 10. Icaught this movie randomly channel surfing; on The Retro Movie channel.The listing gave it two stars; and I have to say it deserves a 4 starsout of 4 stars. I also, can't believe Comcast; or whoever rated themovie gave it two stars. It is Just a very intelligent movie; thatworks on many levels. It is a sophisticated movie; and that might havesomething to do with it getting such a low rating from a generalAmerican audience? I can see that in Europe it would have beenappreciated more; for obvious reasons. There is a scene where theprotagonist and girlfriend are in a cinema; watching "A Man an AWoman"; which is a French Film by the esteemed; French New WaveDirector; Francois Truffaut; this right there is a good example of whyan American audience would not appreciate this film; for what it is? Agreat film.

I watched "Hustle" only because there is Catherine Deneuve -in fact this is one of the very few movies she made in Hollywood. The pair she forms with Burt Reynolds also interested me.
A LA detective has to discover why a young girl was found dead on a beach. He deals with the father, who obviously doesn't accept her loss and doesn't believe the police explanation -she has committed suicide. At the same time the detective has a relationship with a French prostitute, he dreams of taking her away from the job.
It's a flat unexciting thriller, with quite empty dialogs and useless characters (can anyone explain me what does Ernest Borgnine do in the story?).
Also the elements of the script are quite disconnected to each other -the murder of the girl and the relationship between Reynolds and Deneuve. Nothing is in-depth.
Catherine Deneuve, at the end, is only a decorative presence.
A big disappointment from Robert Aldrich -the director of "The Dirty Dozen".
Having collaborated on "The Longest Yard", director Robert Aldrich castBurt Reynolds and Eddie Albert again in the enigmatic "Hustle".Reynolds plays LA cop Phil Gaines. He and his wife have basically norelationship, so Phil lives with call girl Nicole Britton (CatherineDeneuve). When a young woman gets found dead on the beach one day, Philand his colleague Louis Belgrave (Paul Winfield) get hired toinvestigate. They conclude that she died of a self-induced drugoverdose. But they don't tell her parents (Ben Johnson and EileenBrennan) that there were massive amounts of semen in all three orificesof the woman's body, and that the woman was a stripper in a nightclub.The father is convinced that this was not a suicide, and is determinedto investigate on his own if necessary.
I have to say that the movie has a rather convoluted plot: the numberof characters - and the question of each character's relationship toeach other - makes the whole thing hard to follow at times. As it is,following the revelation of the body at the beginning, the movie sortof throws Phil into the story from right out of the blue. It seems thatmostly, the movie functions as a look at the underbelly of 1970s LA,including a hostage situation in one scene. And, if all else fails,there's always something sexy for Catherine Deneuve to do (namely thepart about what Switzerland has). A surprise appearance - although theydo credit him - is Ernest Borgnine as Phil and Louis's superior; he'sthe only character who seems as if he's about to have a seizure orsomething.
Overall, I think that the movie is seeing, if only once. While it istrue that the movie progresses pretty slowly, I actually would assertthat that adds some realism: not every detective/action story has to bea series of explosions and mayhem.
All in all, a worthwhile movie. BTW, did you notice who the hold up manat the end is? It's Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund. And Iwonder if David Spielberg is related to Steven Spielberg.
