What an interesting contrast between this and The Artist, how the French set their 1920's film in Hollywood and Scorsese chose Paris to showcase his love of early film makers.
My girlfriend can't watch 3D films, so we saw it without, and the story was just as charming, though I'm sure the panoramic sweeps of the train station and the city would have been great.
Superb acting by all, and a plot worthy of attention as it goes from mystery to thriller to homage. There are genuine clips from early films to enjoy that only enhance the rewards of the main story. Ben Kingsley is a delightful, complex character that we don't trust and learn to love.
The attention to detail is incredible. For those who know why, they'll recognize Johnny Depp is playing Django Reinhardt. Emily Mortimer and Sascha Cohen bring warmth and humor to their romance, and the young actors who carry the story will enchant you.
Go see this one, and you'll understand why it will win so many Oscars.
