Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

"The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past." - Robertson Davies, A Voice from the Attic

I'm Kelly; lover of the 1940s, Gene Kelly, and Jesus. This blog is devoted to early 20th Century history, period dramas, Doctor Who, and my sexy French lover, Jean Dujardin.

For culturevulturette: Next expression! Jean is derpy. (what is Bob de Niro doing with Kirsten???)

It’s amazing how his face can go from suave to derpy in a matter of seconds.

Haha. Oh, Jean, that’s such an old joke, yet I still laugh because it’s you. :-)

Tonight during the Q & A (with writer/director Michel Hazanavicius) following the prescreening of The Artist, a fellow viewer brought up another one of my favorite films of the year, Hugo. The viewer mentioned that both films are (in their own way) an ode to silent films. 

I believe that quality is why I find both Hugo and The Artist to be so memorable. It may be because my one true love in life is the very thing these movies revel in or it may be the fact that the world of movies, at this very moment, is in a transitional period (analog vs. digital) much like the one that took place in the late 20’s (silent vs. talkie)

Similarites aside, both films are vastly different and wonderful in their own right and I hope others will give them the time of day when they are released theatrically. It is important to remember and cherish all that the past has done for the world of entertainment WHILE ALSO embracing the future. 

In conclusion, if you are in love with the art of classic storytelling, go see The Artist. If you are in love with the warmth movie magic brings, see Hugo. If you can, see both. You will not be sorry. 

-Mr. Bohs

These are exactly the two films I cannot wait to see! Hugo (based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret) and The Artist.

Gene Kelly is interviewed at Cannes (x)

You mean, “Gene Kelly is awesome in Cannes”.

;)

I MUST see this! There’s my Gene!

I just can’t get enough of Jean Dujardin

He’s my flavor of the moment. We’ll see if this sticks. I’m interested in seeing where his success takes him now that he’s caught (part of) America’s attention.
