DVD/Blu-ray Release: The Artist

June 26, 2012

Alliance Films’ released The Artist today as a Blu-ray + DVD Combo pack.  The silent masterpiece will be remembered for its universal story of romance and changing times, as well as the wonderful performances by the whole cast, including the lovable dog Uggie.

Deservedly nominated for ten Oscars and winning five including Best Picture, The Artist is one that definitely needs to be checked out if you haven’t seen it already, and one you’ll want to revisit if you have.  When we reviewed the film when it opened in theatres, our consensus was:

A black and white silent film that beautifully pays homage to the rise of the talkies in Hollywood, director Michel Hazanavicius’ The Artist is a moving, inspirational and ultimately unforgettable film that features a wonderful musical score by Ludovic Bource and a brilliant leading performance from Jean Dujardin.  **** (Out of 4)

The combo pack includes the following special features:

• Blooper Reel

The Artist: The Making of an American Romance

• Q & A with Filmmakers and Cast

• Hollywood as a Character: The Locations of The Artist

• The Artisans Behind The Artist

The Artist is 100 minutes and rated PG for mature themes.  You can read our full theatrical reviews here.
