THE ARTIST

THE ARTIST is one of the best films of this year... or any year.

It is a brand new, modern, black & white (mostly), silent (mostly) film about the end of black & white, silent pictures. And love!

The film is chock full (yes, that's probably a vintage-ly accurate expression) of Gallic irony and humor, wisdom, cinematic wizardry, and intelligence.  And love of films. 

It's a French film, but it has no French (hey, it's silent!), and it was made in Hollywood by an American crew.

It was brilliantly written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius...

...And perfectly executed by a large cast, toplined by the terrific pair of French actors, Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, assisted by a powerful American cast of supporting players.
