I saw this film at one of the film Festivals it has been at. And I have to say that this film looks like (so far) the best looking film for the oscars. the cast looks great and will most likely be wining something for the cast. I think that Jean Dujardin will win best actor. Yes, J.Eager looks great. but this guy is off the wall good. I mean you watch it and you ask your self why have you never heard of him before? and the rest of the cast is great but he is the best because he is the lead. also the film is great, it was well done. the sound in it is great and well put. I like how the film shows us a little darker side of silent films. and I like how it kept the great feel of old movies yet with the style of newer films. I think that this film is up there with the kings speech. because it is great. this is the best film I have seen in a long time. I think that this movie is going to change movies for a long time. its is going to bring the silent films back up.and I think that it will make it a lot easier for small first time film makers to get money. Because if you look at the oscars the past 4 years small Indy films have won. and I think that we are looking at the next one here. so get ready to go to see this movie when it comes out. I highly think it is worth the money. unless you hate silent movies in which case you should still go see it just so you do not feel weird at dinner parties. the one thing I would have changed in the film and had it be a little older looking. I do not like my Black & White movies to look so clean and new. I like them to look like they did in the 30s and 40s. but other then that I just love this movie. and if you can read lips I know you will love it too!
