    That is good news about a wider distribution, I have a lot of folks that said they wanted to see it here and despite my best efforts, the theater would not carry.

    Hadley! Great photo, I love that dog. And I absolutely enjoyed Dujardin's acceptance speech. "I love your country!" That was wonderful. I was jumping up and down in my command center at work last night on a night shift. Myself and one other film lover, both dressed in Coast Guard uniform, started tap dance (in boots) when The Artist won it's much deserved awards. The best was dancing just as Dujardin did as well... sort of hard in boots, but I managed.

    After reading too many 'netizen' reviews this morning, it became clear to me that the people who wrote them either loved "The Artist" or really disliked it. Few seemed to be neutral on the subject.

    This is a definite must-see for me! Haven't been to a cinema in some 15 years because normally there's never really anything that I want to see. But this is an exception!

    I just read this Blog regarding the clothes in the Artist. He has a point. But honestly it didn't bother me much. One of the extras had a nice beltback suit when they rescued Valentin from the fire.

    From the reviews that you have posted I think they can be categorised into 'people who have seen it' against 'people who haven't'!
    I'm not dressed up. I'm just dressed.

    Most of what this blog says is true, but the author makes inaccurate or incorrect statements here and there. Some examples:



    "In the close up, you can see that Dujardin wears a tuxedo with flaps on the pockets – again, a highly informal detail that no man would have worn back then."

    False: on American tuxedos, flaps were the norm throughout the 1920s and most of the '30s.



    "...the cut of the waistcoat – with the bottom button fastened – is not the way men wore it back in the day."

    False: In the U.S., waistcoat bottom buttons were usually worn fastened.



    "While the film techniques and approach of the silent film may be very authentic, the clothes are clearly modern."

    Not completely true. On certain supporting actors and many of the extras, the clothes are authentic vintage, even 1930s vintage. And all of the neckties worn by Jean Dujardin are authentic vintage 1930s pieces.

    I think they might be confusing the term "art film" with a film being creative/ a work of art. Primarily because so few movies are works of art anymore.

    Meanwhile, some silent movie aficionados are criticizing "The Artist" for not being 'arty', and for being too modern.
