much belated viewing: the artist. shar's been highly anticipating this film but slacked on actually seeing it until today. it was a trip down old hollywood lane with deep influences from "singin' in the the rain". a film with hardly any words spoken captures the attention where you can hear a pin drop among the audience. out with the old and in with new. as a gal who loves the past, i was rooting for george (the old). there was a compromise of sorts in the ending. charming, clever and might be worth best picture. i still am rooting for "bridesmaids" for that honor but the oscars have never given a comedy any due.
