LFF: The Artist

Posted by James Cartwright,

The London Film Festival has been in full swing for just over a week now and has seen some truly remarkable cinema debut in the capital. With such a monumental timetable it’s nigh-on impossible to see even a fraction of what’s on offer, so with that in mind we’ll be simplifying things and showing you some of our favourite titles every day this week. To kick-off we have one of the festival’s unlikely success-stories, Michel Hazanavicius’ The Artist, an homage to the golden age of the silver screen that abandons dialogue to take us back to the days when cinema was silent.
