I really like The Artist. The creators basically put as many obstacles in their way as they could and still came up with a compelling film.

The Forrest Gump narrative is not unique, think of Zelig if nothing else. And Hanks' performance was insulting one-note rubbish. Not even the excuse of creating a character, JK Simmons and Mahershala Ali have shown how one does that much more impeccably. It's probably stopped Hanks winning another Oscar, the Academy doesn't think he deserves three, and having fucked up with his second won't vote for him again.
