Justin Hsaid on Friday, July 27, 2012 8:27:42 PMI enjoyed watching The Artist, but I can understand why most moviegoers were turned off. It is a completely different viewing experience than what we are used to. I get the artistic choices to use the 1.37:1 aspect ratio and mono sound. They were trying to emulate the viewing experience of a 1920's silent movie. However, I think the movie would have been more accessible if done in the more normal 1.85:1 (flat) aspect and with a 5.1 sound mix. I'll even go so far as to say doing it in color rather than black and white might have roused the interests of more people.
That being said, I thought The Artist told a wonderful story. Although I was constantly distracted by how different the viewing experience was, I am glad I gave the movie a chance.

A waste of beautiful images; I can go to the Art Institute and not have to suffer through the juvenile narration and a mediocre Sean Penn! Badlands was a long time ago, give it up.
Philip Mooresaid on Wednesday, February 01, 2012 11:30:13 PMHey Rich, I loved this film as well it's in my top ten of 2011 and I think knowing the way the academy votes, this could well win Best Picture and I would be totally cool with that. Although my favourite film of 2011 was The Tree Of Life.
Ryansaid on Friday, December 16, 2011 3:11:53 PMGreat review. This was my favorite film of the year along with Midnight in Paris and The Tree of Life. You're my favorite reviewer, I've spent twelve years on this earth and seen many reviews from various reviewers but yours always shine.
