Reviewed: The Artist

**Rating:** 5/5

I can't think of a better way to start the new year than by seeing **The Artist**, Michel Hazanavicius's charming homage to the early days of cinema. It's a near-silent, black and white film which demonstrates such meticulous mastery of the form that it could be mistaken for a rediscovered lost masterpiece.
