    Tribeca Review: 'Möbius' Spins Off In Too Many Directions You Won't Want To Follow

    Who can you trust? It’s the question posed by the international spies at the heart of “Mobius,” all of whom spend their time so deep undercover that they might as well be double-crossing themselves. Of course, as this film proudly, defiantly jumps deep into the pool of international finance trading ...

    'The Artist' Duo Jean Dujardin & Michel Hazanavicius Work Together Again On Omnibus 'The Players'

    "The Artist" actor Jean Dujardin is to director Michel Hazanavicius what Ryan Gosling is to Nicolas Winding Refn. With the former's silent movie sensation winning over audiences and poised to become a Best Picture nominee at the Oscars, it marks their third film together following the two very popul...

    NYFF '11: 'The Artist' Director Michel Hazanavicius Credits Orson Welles As One Of Many Influences

    Director Wanted To Revive Silent Movie Style For A Contemporary Movie AudienceDespite stealing audiences' hearts and walking away from the prestigious Cannes Film Festival with the Best Actor Award, Michel Hazanavicius's nostalgia-fueled silent feature "The Artist" may have its work cut out for it. Will regular movie-goers go and see something like this in an era when the mere thought of a flick not being in color is appalling? It's a tough call, but with the right push, it might get sales solely based on the fact it's unlike anything in at the cineplex today. After that, all the movie needs is five minutes: it's an instant charmer, an escapi...

    Watch: Six Clips From Crowd-Pleasing Silent Oscar Contender 'The Artist'

    The big film that no one saw coming this year was Michel Hazanavicius's "The Artist." The director was best known for his cult French comedies in the "OSS 117" series, and reunited with star Jean Dujardin for a silent movie homage, riffing on films from "Singin' in the Rain" to "A Star Is Born," sho...

    Cannes Review: 'The Artist' A Joyous, Big Hearted Tribute To Old School Moviemaking

    When The Weinstein Company announced last week just before the kick off the Cannes Film Festival that they had picked up Michel Hazanavicius' "The Artist" it was certainly a surprise. Harvey and Bob laid down big bucks for a film that, in this age of CGI and 3D blockbuster pictures, seems like box office poison. A silent film, in black and white, led by two French stars that are virtually unknown in the United States, it doesn't seem like the kind of movie that, outside of arthouse buffs, would catch on with a broader audience. But, the Weinstein instincts were right on as screening this morning for critics, not only did "The Artist" play lik...
