Ready To Wear: Haute couture is out of the closet and thriving

Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo are captivating in The Artist

Christina Patterson: The Artist is a reminder of some of the things we've lost

On Saturday night, in a cinema in Dalston, the audience clapped. They may or may not have clapped after the event that took place next, which was a "happening", involving live, human beings, and which sounded to me as weird as the outfits of the trilby-headed hipsters I had to squeeze past. But what they clapped when I was there wasn't human, and it wasn't alive. What they clapped was a film that had just finished called The Artist.

Michel Hazanavicius' silent film The Artist received the most nominations. It has been honoured in 12 categories, including best film, director, leading actor for Jean Dujardin, leading actress for Berenice Bejo, original screenplay, original music, cinematography, editing, production design, costume design, make up and hair, and sound.

The little French film that has capitalised on the public's dismay with big-budget Hollywood

When Harvey Weinstein phoned his brother and business partner, Bob, from this year's Cannes Film Festival and announced that he had just spent "a lot of millions" acquiring a silent, black-and-white movie by a little-known French director, he is said to have received a two-word response: "You're mad!"

Geoffrey Macnab: A small band of film critics and their curious choices

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has always been an eccentric organisation. How, you wonder, can the small troop of foreign critics based in LA have overlooked the claims of Terrence Malick's Palme d'Or winner, The Tree Of Life? Why is The Ides Of March – such a middling thriller – being so feted? How did Angelina Jolie suddenly appear from left field to secure a Foreign Language nomination for her Bosnian-set directorial debut In The Land Of Blood And Honey? (It has not been widely seen or reviewed.)
