Memorable Chaplin (4 movies items)

" The first appearance of the legendary tramp happened in Keystone Studios' film The Kid Auto Race at Venice (1914). Chaplin has said they told him at the studio to create a character of their wardrobe, and that's how the tramp was born. Like he says in his biography, when he had the outfit on, he immediately got lots of ideas; jokes, tricks, etc. Of course there already was similar characters in variety, and they've probably been a part of Chaplin's inspiration. Iconic gentleman who lives fo"

""Yes, I can see now." @ Blu-ray I'll have to admit that the only Charlie Chaplin film I had seen before I put on this one was The Gold Rush. Which I enjoyed a lot. City Lights ain't as funny as The Gold Rush, but what it lacks in humor it regains in heart, warmth and sweet and innocent naivety. Chaplin creates a film that's curiously funny all the way through. Either if it is Chaplin's own acting, or the peculiar characters he creates. It's not shout-out-loud hilarious, but there are scenes, "

" Possible gay subtext. The millionaire is a closeted gay person. After the tramp stopped him from committing suicide while he's drunk, they ate dinner and when he sobered up he said, "I'm out to everybody!, " and when he got drunk again he started kissing the Tramp. "

" City Lights isn't Chaplin's most visually beautiful or funny film (that would be Modern Times), but it is his most heartfelt and beautiful film. I can't imagine why anyone who likes movies would not like this film. City Lights is a noteworthy early example of gay humor. The rich man is a closeted gay person. After the tramp stopped him from committing suicide"

"24.6. Kolmas katselukerta parin vuoden sisään, joskin missasin hieman alkua. Edelleen ehkäpä täydellisin romanttinen komedia ikinä, ikuisesti naurattava ja pakahduttava, sanattomaksi pistävä mestariteos, yksi niistä elokuvista jonka voisin katsoa missä tahansa mielentilassa uudelleen. Ja niin varmasti tulen tekemään jokaisen tv-esityksen kohdalla, vaikka jäljellä olisi vain lopetus..."

"24.6. Sisältää runsaastikin kelpoja elementtejä Chaplinin perinteisistä hupailuista ennen kuin viimeisellä viidellä minuutilla päättää järjesttää elokuvahistorian muistettavimpiin ja tunnepitoisimpiin kuuluvan lopun. Eikä siihen sen kummempaa tarvita niin voilà: kulkurin parhaimmistoa."

"24/06/2012 Oikeasti, tässä oli vasta viides näkemäni Chaplin. Hyi. Ja kun elokuvan laatu on tätä luokkaa, niin ei voisi oikeasti enempää olla häpeissään. Kaupungin valot melodraamallaan on aivan kertakaikkisen puhdas mestariteos hulvattomalla komedialla ja koskettavalla rakkaus- ja ystävyystarinallaan. Kaunis ja puhdas niin maailman jokaisella tasolla, eikä tämän elokuvan aiheuttaman kaltaista hyvää mieltä ole vähään aikaan mikään elokuva tarjonnut."

" Quote: I think they're all fairly artful pieces of work, but I think my all-time favorite is Charlie Chaplin's City Lights, which was one of the... well, it's like now, somebody still making a film in 2D, three years later: he still made it as a silent film , with inter-titling, and it had a recorded score. It's one of those films that I've shown to many, various groups of people socially. I remember going to a DVD night in Silverlake, with a lot of very groovy LA people, and we all had to bri"

My Movie List - What I like - Veed (28 movies items)

"The way I see it, this is Chaplin's best work, not only because it is Chaplin's greatest portrayal of the Tramp in his career, but because of its perfect mix of hilarious and intelligent slapstick comedy and a very emotional, romantic story. Undoubtedly, this is my favorite romantic comedy of all time and one of the few movies I can rank a perfect score."
