The Artist Reviews

Badass Digest

If The Artist truly were from the period it's about, it would be a minor film that occasionally played on TCM at 3AM, and about which even hardcore silent film fans wouldn't care much.

The Academy Awards are the biggest annual party that Hollywood throws for itself, and The Artist is a movie that worships Hollywood. Looks like a done deal.

If silent, black and white films were something lots of people wanted to see, they'd still be making them. They aren't because most people don't. They are passÚ and their appeal is strictly esoteric.

Slant Magazine

Ignores everything that's fascinating and memorable about the silent-film era, focusing instead on a patchwork of general knowledge, so eroded of inconvenient facts that it doesn't even qualify as a roman Ó clef.

Don't let the simplicity of the story fool you, 'The Artist' is a movie in which the pleasures lie entirely in the details.

The Artist is apparently Hazanavicius' dream project and it's truly inspiring to see a filmmaker take such a big risk in this day and age: especially when it pays off so big.

Hazanavicius has perfectly captured the look and feel of the silent era with "The Artist."

A modern-day classic that proves that Hollywood can still make incredible films.

Its retro-retro take uniquely delivers the most crucial element of the moviegoing experience, the art of entertainment.

There appears to be one last goodbye, one last spotlight, for an industry that should never have left us in the first place.

It's a screaming endorsement to the power of cinema... without saying a word.

April 29, 2012

This is by far the best film of the year, an instant classic, which embodies the very essence of cinema. If we, in Northern Ireland, are not screening this sensational film then we might as well shut down all our cinemas.

A wonderful experience but if your mind isn't open to the idea of a silent film you might want to give it a miss. There are big rewards for those willing to investigate. You might have a new appreciation for the art of filmmaking.

There is literally nothing wrong with it. I don't have a single nit to pick, minor flaw to point out or little bit that annoyed me. It is pure magic from the first frame to the last.

The Artist is a technical exercise first, movie second-but the result is undeniably pleasant. Few will be safe from the movie's bombardment of silent but deadly charm.

Dujardin and Bejo light up the screen. It's easy to believe them as movie idols from a bygone era.

That the film is so convincing and so engaging despite the lack of dialogue is an unquantifiable triumph.
