The Artist has been hugely praised and is up for tons of Oscars this Sunday (where it will probably win more than any other film this year). Quite honestly, all of those nominations (and soon-to-be awards) are well-deserved. The movie is an absolutely brilliant cinematic experiment. Yes, cinematic experiment. On the level of being a movie, it’s still very entertaining, but it’s a very niche title. Anybody who isn’t a fan of early cinema or a film buff, probably won’t enjoy this. But whether you enjoy it or not, there’s no denying this was brilliantly crafted.
