VIDEO: Jean Dujardin’s Villain Auditions 0 36

Funny or Die villain video Jean Dujardin

Jean Dujardin was put firmly on the international map this past year as the star of the almost universally adored The Artist (read our review here), the favourite to win Best Picture at the Oscars later this month. It’s pretty much a given that he’ll turn up in American, and more importantly English-language, films in the near future but will he follow in the footsteps of foreign language actors like Javier Bardem and Christoph Waltz and play a villain?

Dujardin certainly has a sense of humour about that as he’s starred in a hilarious video over at Funny Or Die in which he makes fun of the fact that he’ll probably be getting many-a-call to play villains in big Hollywood action movies. I won’t say anymore for fearing of spoiling it – check out the video below and leaves your thoughts on it in the comments.

Retro: Vertigo Dream Sequence 0 101

Retro - Vertigo Dream Sequence

Retro is a regular feature highlighting the classics, whether that be an original trailer, poster, still image or classic scene.

As you no doubt have read by now Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1958 film Vertigo has unseated Citizen Kane after five decades as the greatest film of all time in Sight & Sound’s critics poll. Having just recently rewatched the film it’s not difficult to see why it’s finally found its way to the top spot.

In celebration of Vertigo’s now monumental standing within the film world I have decided to highlight, as part of our Retro feature, the dizzying dream sequence found in the film. A unique, standalone signature sequence to add to the Hitch list alongside the shower scene in Psycho (to name but one), it’s truly a wonder to behold.
