Amsterdam (out Oct 6) is a comedic, Coen Brothers-esque 1930s tale about two U.S. military veterans accused of murder who meet with a bizarre assortment of people in an effort to clear their name. The quirky jokes and themes don’t always land (writer-director David O. Russell pushes too hard in places) but I was slowly lured into this strange world and its equally strange characters. Grade: B.
