The Artist

Oh, how funny! The Artist is poised to most likely win Best Picture at the Oscars in just a few weeks, and although there's somewhat of a backlash against it (which I just don't get at all), it's a wonderful film full of cinematic joy and an immense appreciation for Hollywood past. As one final glimpse at how funny this film is, Allocine (via SlashFilm) recently posted a blooper reel from the film, which includes a lot of amusing silent B&W moments. A lot of them involve the adorable Jack Russell terrier Uggie (who just retired from acting) and it has plenty of prat falls and much more, but this is quite amusing to watch. Check it out below!

Watch the newly released blooper reel for Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist, originally via Allocine:

Hollywood, 1927. George Valentin is a successful silent movie star. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career. But for young extra Peppy Miller, it seems the sky's the limit — stardom awaits.

The Artist was conceived and directed by French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius (interviewed here), of the popular OSS 117 French spy films and Mes amis previously. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this May. In the first major sale of the fest, The Weinstein Company picked up the film for US release. Its been playing in theaters since last year, but with Oscar glory, it'll be expanding, so check your local listings!

  • I enjoyed the film the first time, it was okay, but I couldn't watch it for the second. It's not that wonderful. Wouldn't you say it's a bit of a rip-off -- for of course it seems all fresh -- since there wasn't such a film for 80 years??
    • Rip off? Rip off of what? It's a throwback, to times of past, showing us how wonderful filmmaking and moviegoing can be even if it's silent and B&W. I loved it. I don't know what else you were expecting?

    There's backlash because it shouldn't win best picture. 
    • WHY though?! Have you even SEEN it? And why do you say that? Because it's "not original"? Oh but it IS! It's a wonderful film, not only harkening back to Hollywood of past, but doing it in a charming, entertaining way that even audiences in 2011 love. I don't get why there is a backlash. Sure, maybe you want something else to win, but this film is just as deserving.

      My simple response to this (perhaps justified in other years) opinion is: what other nominee should win instead? You'd rather Moneyball or Incredibly Close go down through the years as the absolute best movie of 2011? Personally I wouldn't, not at all...
