Technically a water recycling facility for the town of Gilbert where wetlands have sprung up around the basins that hold treated wastewater, the preserve is a serene 110-acre toehold of wilderness in the middle of suburbia. Its vegetation creates habitats for many types of birds and animals, and a system of trails provide plenty of space for jogging, dog-walking, and just getting away from it all. A lake is regularly stocked with fish by the Arizona Game and Fish Department, and a host of activities — from family bird walks to kids’ archaeology digs — is offered by the preserve’s naturalist and education staff.

There are moments in David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” where it feels like you’re watching one of the great Martin Scorsese pictures. It’s a slick, passionately constructed crime drama full of smooth dialog and intriguing characters. Of course “American Hustle” never gets quite as brutal as “Goodfellas,” “Casino,” or even “The Departed.” The film is just as much a crime comedy as it is a crime drama. In that sense, perhaps “American Hustle” is more along the lines of “The Sting,” or “Catch Me if You Can,” or maybe even “The Ocean’s Eleven” movies. Whatever you compare it to, “American Hustle” still works beautifully as an enormously fun con artist picture while also managing to be something deeper.
