The Big Screen!
I notice that "The Artist" is favored to win the Best Picture Oscar next week. It should-- the flick is a remarkable movie experience. But I wonder how much of that is due to seeing the film on a movie screen? So much of the movie's impact is due to effective use of close-ups. The surprises and juxtapositions wouldn't have nearly the impact otherwise.
