Guys in Ties #121: Jean Dujardin

Posted 2 years ago
Ieri una mia amica è andata al cinema a Londra a vedere The Artist.
Arrivata alla cassa per comprare il biglietto si è accorta di non avere la carta di credito (a Londra ormai i contanti non esistono più); momento di panico: forse l’ha persa, forse l’ha semplicemente lasciata a casa, forse gliel’hanno rubata.
Un completo estraneo che era in fila dopo di lei ha seguito la conversazione, poi si è fatto avanti e le ha detto: “mi spiace che non trovi la tua carta di credito, ma tanto adesso non ci puoi fare niente. Facciamo che il biglietto del cinema te lo offro io, perché tutti devono vedere questo film.”
Ecco, io sono anni che non vedo un film che ispiri cose del genere, e anche solo per questo The Artist vince l’Oscar del mio cuore.

The Artist rende tutti più buoni.

Uggie from The Artist should definitely be nominated for an Oscar.

'The Artist': This is your brain on silent films

ecantwell:

I love the brain.

“If we were able to record your brain while you watch a silent movie, we would see your auditory cortex activate, even though there’s not a single sound that impacts your eardrum,” said Kaspar Meyer, research assistant professor of psychology at the University of Southern California’s Brain and Creativity Institute. “There’s a creative process involved. The brain is filling in auditory information by drawing on memories.” 

… Ironically, according to Meyer, a low-tech film like “The Artist” may actually engender a more complex creative process in the brain than its 3-D, surround-sound competition.

I know nothing at all about neuroscience, but I do know a thing or two about movies, and I have always believed this to be the case. Hooray for science!

I know I already said you should go see The Artist. But did I mention the dog in the movie? This dog, guys. Seriously. 

(His name is Uggie, and he’s shown here with director Michel Hazanavicius and gorgeous lead actress Berenice Bejo.) 

(Also you should look at this picture.)

I  love everyone in this picture. And the other one too. And in The Artist.
