SHORT TAKES

Jean Dujardin on cinema and filming The Artist:

     “It’s really a childlike pleasure  —  the set, the cinema  —  a kid’s dream.  I think you have to keep that, marvel at it.”  (in an interview with Tracy McNicholl for Newsweek 11/12/11)

Owen Gleiberman on The Artist:

     “…the movie’s real romance is the one between us, the jaded 21st-century audience, and the mechanical innocence of old movies, which here becomes new again.”  (in Entertainment Weekly 12/2/11)
