Saw this fine film TWICE in the last week or so. Amazing film I went a second time because the first time I viewed it was in some cramped art house theatre in Rhinebeck. I'm not the smallest guy but there I was sqooshed between the wall and some old lady. I spent most of the movie worried about whether the blood would ever return to my lower extremities. I couldn't move or change seats... sold out!.

I went again last night to the Spectrum and had a much more enjoyable time. It's amazing to think that up until 1929 or so ALL movies were silent. And this one goes with the double whammy of B&W AND Silence. After the first minute you don't notice it at all. Great acting, marvelous story telling and a wonderful "script"? In that I know how sappy H'Wood is and how much they LOVE films about themselves I think "The Artist" will clean up at the Oscars. Great costumes by the by. Hell great everything!

Exactly, great movie!
Jean Dujardin is a very good actor.

Have you seen Brice de Nice?
