    10 Movies to See Instead of "The Artist"

    One of the most disappointing films for me this year is Michel Hazanavicius's "The Artist." As a fan of cinema of the '20s and '30s, the silent throwback is right up my alley, but I wanted more than just references and homage. Some people are saying it's not much diffe...

    Berenice Bejo Talks About Not Talking In The Silent Movie Sensation 'The Artist'

    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.
