The Artist is the definitive example of grade A Oscar bait. Aside from its two breakout performances by the leads, it's essentially a tribute to black and white silent films.
| Original Score: 7/10
In several ways, The Artist is a good movie, but in no way is it a great movie, and those going in expecting something special have been warned.
| Original Score: 3/5
Haters gonna hate, but as Sony's excellent Blu-ray proves, The Artist keeps on charming through the backlash.
A silent love song that anyone who adores film can nonetheless hear, loud and clear!
| Original Score: 4/4
