Silent Confirmation

Some of my friends loved it, some were indifferent, but I liked it.

I tried coming up with something intelligent and coherent to say about L’Artiste, but couldn’t do so without giving away too much of the film. Instead, I’ll just say this. Since the time when sound and color came into cinema, there have been plenty of black and white films, eschewing color for effect. But to my knowledge, this is the only silent film outside the silent film era. That ought to be interesting enough for one to go see it, no?
