The tracking shot of Brandon jogging down 31st Street in Manhattan is a technical marvel.
I didn't recognize James Badge Dale as Brandon's boss. Every time I see him, he looks different.
When George begins hearing sound effects, I thought The Artist might become Pleasantville with sound instead of colour. Instead, it becomes an hour of George unendearingly moping about feeling sorry for himself because he's a stubborn, self-entitled prat, one who doesn't deserve all of Peppy's beneficence.
Not sure why Malcolm McDowell bothered with his nondescript cameo.
