  • 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

  • In many ways - in all ways - The Artist is a profound achievement. show more

  • Drama, comedy, action and romance are intertwined in this gorgeously photographed and brilliantly directed film. Lead performances are thoroughly engaging despite - or perhaps because of - being wordless. 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.
