I loved it. Loved it, loved it, loved it, loved it, loved it, loved it, loved it.

Days after seeing The Artist, I find it hard to place any individual moments that resonated (aside from the doggie heroism) and I suspect that, title aside, the movie feels a complacent cynicism toward art.

Maybe this tribute to those early movies will inspire you to go watch something small, square and silent.

Hazanavicius boldly strips cinema back to its wordless, monochrome days and, boy, does the end result sparkle.

Anchored by the wildly charming Dujardin in the lead, The Artist is so warm and entertaining, it will leave you speechless. And smiling.

The story fluctuates between light and dark elements as smoothly as its gorgeously contrasted black and white photography, dowsing audiences in a nostalgic glow of sunshine and shadows.

Sometimes cinema should just be pure, unadulterated joy, and The Artist is precisely that, in every wordless frame.

The year's most unlikely crowd-pleaser.
February 17, 2015
Filming in gorgeous black-and-white, director Michel Hazanavicius lovingly embraces all the tropes of silent cinema (iris shots, titles), sharpening the familiar narrative with a slight edge that should satisfy contemporary tastes.

Through it all, Dujardin has great dignity, is hugely likeable, and pulls off touches of comic poignancy not far from Chaplin's.

What's not to like about The Artist? And then again, what is there, exactly, to love about it?

You have to applaud a movie that takes every rule for How to Sell Your Movie to Modern Audiences and throws it on a silver nitrate fire.

Dujardin replicates the polished urbanity of Douglas Fairbanks, while his Argentine-born co-star is so puckishly charming that, had she been born 100 years ago, she would have given Clara Bow a run for her money.

Instead of inviting us sophisticated moderns to look back and laugh, it insists that we look back and rediscover something we have lost.
