Friday Flick:

For Friday Flicks, I usually post about older or obscure movies to dust them off and find what's fresh outside of the mainstream, but not this week. This Friday Flick is a black and white silent movie produced in 2011 and very hot at Cannes this year.

Hells yeah!  I can't wait to see it. 

Watch the trailer:

Starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo, the cast also includes John Goodman, James Cromwell, Penelope Ann Miller, and Missi Pyle. Written and Directed by Michel Hazanavicius. 

(p.s. Thanks Carol for letting me know about it!)

This one is definitely on our radar too. Hopefully it will show up locally.

P.S. My word verification for this comment to post is "shagg."

Ha!!! Excellent word verification. My fingers are crossed that it comes here, too. It would be perfect at the Wilma!

Chris said...

It would be perfect at the Wilma since it's a silent movie. It would eliminate the problem I have there of not being able to understand a friggin' thing dialogue-wise. Capote? Winter's Bone? Attack the Block? Missed huge swaths of those movies because the combination of weird sound and odd theater acoustics (and accents, in some places) made the dialogue incomprehensible. Julia has the same problem; do you guys?

Tonette said...

I do more than Bruce, but YES. Through the grapevine, I heard that they installed a new sound system. I'm not sure when exactly but supposedly it's better. I hope to go soon just so I can listen and check it out.

I just need to get out to the theater to watch a movie!

Chris said...

Same here. Scorcese's HUGO is supposedly really good, and it hits Carmike on Friday, so we will probably go check that out.

Oo, I planned to hit First Friday galleries, so let me know how it is.
