All actors in this film I believe are better than most of the big shots today, because without clever scripts and speeches, these actors had to rely e... read more

The director and actor has received massive acclaim, and is still considered today to be one of the world's greatest directors. And yet, I had not seen any of his films. In fact, I had seen relatively few silent films at all. However, if Chaplin's other work is even nearly as good as City Lights, I will not h... read more

Chaplin hits this one out of the park!

City Lights could be the best Charlie Chaplin film to date; this poignant, entertaining film is both funny and heart-warming. This film also marks one of Chaplin's last silent movies. It was a bold move to release a silent film when the day and age of silent movies had dissolved, but Chaplin's trademark character just wouldn't be as appealing with a voice.

"January, 28th. - I'm taking a Cinema basics course in school and this was the first movie we saw in class. It's very funny and playful, pantomimes and the very rhythmic sounds and soundtrack make it very endearing. The story is a very original and visionary take on the idea of a poor guy pretending to be rich to impress a girl, specially because of how it's portrayed and produced. I've watched a bunch of Chaplins' movies when I was very young on educational TV but completely lost track of whic"

" My 2nd silent movie of all time and I absolutely loved it. I had heard talk of Chaplin's brilliance but its mere level is mystifying."
