Dennis: The Silent Movie That Roars

The Artist is an unusually entertaining and surprisingly joyful film. My bride, my brother and I watched it Oscar Day+1, not because it won so many Academy Awards, but because my sweet Susan wanted to see the film many weeks ago - and we just did not make time to do so. Tonight we made that needed time. And it was a wonderful investment on our collective behalves. The film is touching and beautifully shot. The techniques of the '20s are employed as if the last master silent film cinematographer had not passed away decades ago. The black and white filming was so sharp and completely alive. The film can be watched by any member of your family … no kidding/Dennis Mansfield. More here. (AP file photo: Jean Dujardin, left, kisses his Oscar for best actor for “The Artist”)
