Default The Artist

I'm so sorry this wasn't a Hollywood film. Can you imagine pitching it?

This might be my #2 most excited to see film of this year. It just looks like a blast.

I can't see it making more than $3M, even with a Weinstein Oscar push, so I know I can go opening weekend without sharing an armrest.

It's so refreshingly different and charming. I was lucky to go to a screening where the male and female French leads and John Goodman spoke afterwards. The French actors were so excited about all the American attention they are receiving. People in the audience were pushing to pose for pictures with Jean duJardin. My favorite thing he said was about his remarkable dog sidekick in the film: "I had many sausages in my pocket."

It's not a Hollywood film. It was an acquisition that The Weinstein Company picked up at Cannes this year:

No pitching involved.

A very cute and stylish trailer - the classic musicals and silent era Hollywood as seen through jaundiced modern eyes. Very interesting stuff.

saw it tonight. fantastic. would not be surprised (and would be happy) if it wins best picture, actor, score, and cinematography

even if it wasn't a "silent" movie, it would still be a great story, simply told. but the lack of dialogue makes the reliance on powerful, memorable imagery even more critical.

from the screenwriter's perspective, it's a clinic on using the "shot" to tell your story and just reinforces Mamet's belief that the perfect movie has no dialogue. if there is real drama on the page -- and there is here -- it will show up on the screen.
