I wrote about THE ARTIST earlier in the year during Cannes. Everyone seemed to love it. Then again the Cannes audiences are movie buffs who can appreciate the brilliance of silent films. The young ins may have a hard time getting into a silent, 4x3, black and white movie. The movie centers around a movie star who is resistant to movies with sound and how it could ruin his career. The cast includes John Goodman, Malcolm Macdowell and Missi Pyle. It will be interesting to see if in our world of CG and extraordinary sound, THE ARTIST can get a Best Picture nomination.
