I want to say this movie captivated me, but in all actuality it did not. I liked the homage to silent films, but I can't personally say it meant anything to me, and I doubt it did to many viewers. I compare watching this film to climbing Mount Everest. The's no practical need to doing so, and it's rather difficult to do, but people do it to say they have. I sat through this movie to say I've seen

The point of the movie may be lost on some younger viewers who have never experienced a silent movie. Excellent movie.

The Artist was one of the most entertaining movies I have seen in a very long time. Very creatively done. Actors were superb and the dancing was fabulous! I never knew a silent film could be so much fun. It was so refresing Not! hearing voices. Their facial expression said it all. I highly recommend it.

A love letter to silent cinema sealed with a smirk, The Artist reteams director Michel Hazanavicius with dapper "OSS 117" star Jean Dujardin for another high-concept homage, delivering a heartfelt, old-school romance without the aid of spoken dialogue or sound. Full Review

This is not a work of film history but rather a generous, touching and slightly daffy expression of unbridled movie love. Full Review

The Artist is anything but mute, with a lush orchestral score and a little sonic wink at the the end; fewer movies this year reward listening - and watching - so lavishly. Full Review

The Artist is not just about black-and-white silent pictures. It is a black-and-white silent picture. And it's French. Full Review

The delighted gasps in the theater will make you glad you took a chance on The Artist. Silent black-and-white movies are not coming back, but this one is such a rewarding labor of love by all of the artists involved that it just might make you wish they could. Full Review
