The Artist and Vertigo

I just viewed The Artist on Blu-ray and wanted to make a couple comments. Jean Dujardin delivered a marvelous performance (for which he won an Academy Award) and it was probably second only to his work in the OSS 117 series of spy films parodies. More amazing though was The Artist's use of a segment of Bernard Hermann's score for Hitchcock's Vertigo. While this garnered some rather negative attention (notably Kim Novak's comparison of it's use to rape), I thought it was wonderful to see this classic work used in a fresh way and the opportunity for a new generation to be exposed to it's delights.
