Mine seems to thrive ok in a pot and with it being a dwarf variety, the canopy is higher and more easily seen and enjoyed. It gets top dressed most years and doesn't seem to mind my forgetting to water it from time to time :o)

My acer been in a very large pot for about 15 years now and is about 6 feet high. We have an exposed east-facing garden, so it lives on the west side of a very large contorted hazel that takes the brunt of the cold blast. I give my acer, and it's camellia companion, a fleece jacket for the worst of the winter and usually uncover them towards the end of March, when the wind direction changes to a more acceptable direction. The house casts it's shade from about lunchtime onwards , so it never gets really wind scorched.
