A tremendous, elegantly-mounted biopic

Directed by the late Richard Attenborough (Gandhi, A Bridge Too Far), 1992's Chaplin traces the life and career of Charles Chaplin, from his glum childhood all the way through to his final years in the 1970s. With a screenplay credited to William Boyd, Bryan Forbes and William Goldman, the film is based on two literary sources: Chaplin’s own autobiography, and "Chaplin: His Life and Art" by film... read more

Very good bio-pic on a legend of cinema!

Chaplin is a film that is a lot like biography films because they are emotional films. It is a film about a man who became a legend in his days. This film was absolutely fantastic. It was really inspiring this film was because there were a lot of emotional years for Chaplin especially during WWII and also because of his personal life with women too. This film made me feel good because Charlie Chap... read more

A good movie

Since I have always been a huge fan of Charles Chaplin, of course, I was really to check this flick. On top of that , this high-profile biopic was directed by Richard Attenborough who, in the same genre, managed to deliver something pretty impressive with ‘Gandhi’ released exactly 10 years earlier. Eventually, even though I had some rather high expectations, it was a decent flick but not much ... read more

The biography of Charlie Chaplin, filmmaker extraordinaire. From his formitive years in England to his highest successes in America, Charlie's life, work, and loves are followed. While his screen characters were extremely hilarious, the man behind "The Little Tramp" was constantly haunted by a sense of loss.

"22.9. (DVD) Perinteinen elämänkertaelokuva perinteisen pitkällä kestolla, joka perinteisesti kantaa ihan hyvin. Itseironiaa löytyy Chaplinin kulkurikostyymin synnystä, mutta lopun nyyhkiminen rakastettujen klassikoiden äärellä päättää hyvin alkaneen lentoonlähdön melkoisen kornilla nenälleen rämähtämisellä."

This is one of my favorite biopics. I would love to see that 4 hour cut, because I agree, they cut out a lot. That is always a tough thing, with biopics, trying to fit such an extraordinary life to

A tremendous, elegantly-mounted biopic

“Directed by the late Richard Attenborough (Gandhi, A Bridge Too Far), 1992's Chaplin traces the life and career of Charles Chaplin, from his glum childhood all the way through to his final years in the 1970s. With a screenplay credited to William Boyd, Bryan Forbes and William Goldman, the film is based on two literary sources: Chaplin’s own autobiography, and "Chaplin: His Life and Art" by film critic David Robinson. On top of recounting the life of its titular subject, Chaplin also delves into Hollywood's early days, the politics of filmmaking, and the scandals that defined many careers. The resultant movie is not especially cohesive given the nature of its narrative structure and the breadth of the material in question, but the production has far more strengths than weaknesses.

"(Originally watched at school in about 1996) Pros: Fantastic performance by Robert Downey, Jr. as Charlie Chaplin (he should have won the Oscar he was nominated for); great supporting cast; interesting look at Chaplin's life; all in all, a very well-made film. Cons: Perhaps a tad overlong."

1 - Robert Downey Jr.! (48 movies items)

"47 As Chaplin It took me so long to actually get around to watching this. Is it that I thought it would be bad? Is it that I didn't trust Mr. Downey not to bore me? :P At this juncture, that's ridiculous. I've read nothing but great things about it. However I also know almost nothing about the real Charlie Chaplin. Regardless of that he gave an out standing performance, succeeding once again in making a character unique and bringing it to life. I enjoyed the delicate way he spoke. He kep"

"5/2/17 A film of mixed feelings. On the one hand, Robert Downey Jr's performance is impeccable, managing to capture a master clown, supported by a starry and able cast under Richard Attenborough's workmanlike direction. On the other hand, the story, instead of focusing on the legend's work, treads too much into his personal life and it all feels a little like sensationalism."

30 From 92: My Favorite Films From 1992 (30 movies items)

"Before he donned the armor and became the current darling of Hollywood, Robert Downey Jr. donned the mustache, cane and over-sized shoes of silent film legend of Charlie Chaplin. A bit over-produced, not to metion a bit over-dramatic, but with RDJ's Oscar-worthy performance (which, IMO, he deserved more that Pacino's overblown "booyah" role that took the prize that year), there's enough in this film for me to include it on this list.
