Telluride Film Festival #38 Review: The Artist

The second feature after Trip to the Moon, was the new silent film, The Artist . Yes you just read new and silent.

The movie is directed by Michel Hazanavicius, stars Jean Dujardin, who won best actor in Cannes and Be're'nice Bejo. In the strain of A Star is Born and Sunset Boulevard, one star is rising and one star is falling. American actors John Goodman and James Cromwell, along with the rest of the cast, really show their acting chops, with wonderful gestures and facial expression and the story is wonderfully played out across the scene, the use of sound and music, used ingeniously if not sparingly.
