The Artist encapsulates everything we go to movies for: action, laughs, tears and a chance to get lost in another world. It just might leave you speechless. How can Oscar resist? show more
Silence makes the film interesting by enticing us to concentrate in ways we're not used to, while artistry carries the day. The Artist may have started as a daring stunt, but it elevates itself to an endearing - and probably enduring - delight. show more
Strangely, wonderfully, The Artist feels as bold and innovative a moviegoing experience as James Cameron's bells-and-whistles Avatar did a couple of years ago. Retro becomes nuevo. Quaint becomes cool. show more
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 it, and I can\'t with a good conscience tell anyone ******** a very pleasant movie to endure. It\'s long, a bit boring, but because it is a bit whimsical, and you do get into it a bit, I am giving it three stars.
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.
