Everything works perfectly... [Full review in Spanish]

Such a project may seem pretentious, however, the charm of the film lies in its honesty, its purity and transmitting the mere pleasure of the director to honor the life of a silent film artist... [Full review in Spanish]

The nightmare is the best scene in The Artist because it subverts the tenets of silent film while articulating George's genuine terror....The final stretches [though] are where The Artist loses command of its tone.

Hazanavicius films with a precision rarely seen. [Full review in Spanish]

The Artist makes a strong argument for film as an escape from the modern escapist fantasies. It doesn't mean anything - that's what some critics are crying now - but since when did we decide that movies always have to have meaning?

Dujardin is as charismatic a lead as Gene Kelly ever was, and Bejo is the perfect, irresistible foil for ageing megastar George Valentin. In support, John Goodman is perfectly cast.

Jean Dujardin is ready for a game between eras: his chatty smile and way of moving connect with the great adventurous gallant of silent American cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The Artist is simply a pleasure to watch, if only for just two hours in time.

It's inarguable that you'll leave The Artist with a spring in your step and a grin on your face.
February 26, 2017
The background music is stunningly evocative. And there's a certain grace and charm with which the movie has been made.

As the scattershot everything-at-once world of Net connectivity ever decreases our ability to concentrate, the mere act of turning down the sensory input for an experience seems like a bold act of cultural resistance.
February 17, 2015
Michel Hazanavicius' black-and-white, mostly silent comedy The Artist is a gorgeously made curiosity -- a film that functions as a testament to its own obsession with other movies.
February 17, 2015
Uplifting, heart-warming, hilarious... not necessarily words you'd expect to apply to a black and white silent French film. But The Artist is no ordinary movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
February 17, 2015
Writer/director Michel Hazanavicius uses a shrewd eye for visual composition to tell an emotionally effective story never waylaid by the clever throwback gimmickry of his method.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
February 17, 2015
The Artist is drunk on the history of cinema and art, and culture buffs will get giddy on it.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
