The WAFCA (Washington DC film critics) has announced their winners, and it’s been more of the same. Michel’s Hanazavicius’ The Artist picks up another award for Best Film while Martin Scorsese receives Best Director for his work in Hugo. Almost companion pieces, both movies pay homage to cinema of the past. One is in black-and-white and the other is in 3-D, but both are superb examples of storytelling at its best.
