THE ARTIST (Theatrical Release Canada 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

The Artist
is one of at least thirteen black and white movies made in 2011. This film shows with artistic freshness how silent films began the dying process. Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, and James Cromwell are great in this film. Kudos to everyone involved.

George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) refuses to make the move from silent to talking movies. His finances fall into disrepair and his life style reduces to the state of the homeless.
