The Artist.

As part of my post-grad education,
I've decided to try and attend
every week.

Last night,
I saw The Artist.

It was beautiful.

A silent movie
about silent movies,
made in 2011.

The form was perfect
for looking at the interaction
of speaking and silence.

I liked how hard I had to concentrate on it.
Turns out this nearly century old art form,
tossed aside so quickly to make way for "talkies,"
is powerful enough to keep us from multitasking 
while we watch it.
