Ascending, descending…staircase scenes in films are my favourite. Perhaps it’s the film student in me. Have you seen The Artist?
I’d heard such mixed reviews, despite all the awards it’s been receiving, but finally watched it today. It played out as exactly as I had suspected, and was an enjoyable film.
Wasn’t groundbreaking, or fantastic, but was certainly good and made me smile and want to dance. What more can we ask from a silent picture? I felt the secondary characters were great in the film; both John Goodman and James Cromwell fit their roles perfectly. Now I’d like to watch Singin’ in the Rain and Modern Times.
