I just spent two great hours at the Gate Picturehouse enthralled with The Artist.
I can now understand why The Guardian review said, “It is one of the most eloquent movies imaginable. ” The soundtrack alone was reason to experience this modern day, silent movie. That it is not a “talkie” is not a gimmick but rather a means to a film that is deeply moving with brilliant performances. Those that know me will know that the Jack Russel Terrier which steals most scenes, was a highlight of this great cinematic afternoon.
