My Top 10 Movies, 1920's

1. The Circus (1928)
Hilarious as always, but with a more touching and dramatic tone. Chaplin in one of his best portrayals of the Tramp (just behind City Lights), with the most interesting female lead and love interest of his movies, in one of his more underrated works, honestly.

Funny and interesting enough, this was his only movie being awarded an Oscar... in this case for Best Music. My favorite movie of the 20's.

2. The Kid (1921)
Endearing and funny, this is one of Chaplin's great works, and what the films of the genre want to be.

3. The Gold Rush (1925)
Another Chaplin's amazing movie. Not one of my favorites, but a great movie, hilarious and original by itself.

4. Safety Last! (1923)
A great comedy with a very interesting and original concept for its time and even for today. It is also a movie that in my honest opinion aged incredibly well.

5. The General (1926)
This is one of those movies that are not done today anymore. This movie is a genre by itself, I guess Buster Keaton, like Chaplin, has a very special touch that makes his movies original and different than the others.

6. Metropolis (1927)
An achievement, both in 1927 and today, as well as still as haunting. A Sci-fi masterpiece, disturbing from the beginning to the end. Certainly ahead of its time.

7. Die Nibelungen: Kriemhild's Revenge (1924)
Succeeding his great tale of betrayal with Siegfried, Fritz presents next the greatest revenge tale ever told, Kriemhild's Revenge.

8. Sunrise (1927)
Great romantic story. There is darkness in every human heart. But where is darkness, there can also be light.

9. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
What a thriller! This was probably one of the starters of the genre and surely an innovative movie. A very disturbing and psychotic story with spectacular deformed and sinister architecture and scenarios, even considering today's standards and innovations.
