last week’s films…

The Artist (2011), Michel Hazanavicius ★★★★★

Movie of the week. Full of great scenes. The stairway scene, when Valentin and Zimmer (John Goodman) have their run in – the cut to JG’s expression is not to be missed. Great cameos; Malcolm McDowell, Ed Lauter. [ Climbing the ladder to the top, on the way down to the gutter. He’s now looking up at her, she’s looking down at him – the tables have been turned. ] < hightlight to read spoiler
