The Circus

6 years, 8 months ago at Jan 29 8:04
Like many great works of art, The Circus had a difficult birth. Born from a period of transition when Chaplin’s main form of artistic expression was turning from silent clowns to sound-and-visual spectacles, when his personal life was crashing all around him, and from his artistic perfectionism at all odds.

Until recently The Circus didn’t come up in the conversation about the ... read more

The Circus movie of 1928, in which Charlie Chaplin finds himself working at the circus where he meets a beautiful girl.

The Circus might be Chaplin's last movie after which he focused more towards more serious matters with Modern Times or The Great Dictator. The Circus may not have the messages of his later films. What it does have are some of the best visual gags seen in a Chaplin fi... read more

A classic

Apparently, this movie was the last one Charles Chaplin made during the silent era and it is yet another flick I have seen many times when I was a kid. Indeed, I remember it very well. At some point, the greatest classics directed by Charles Chaplin were broadcast on one of the French channels and my mother recorded all of them. Eventually, I was really grateful and I ended up watching this movie ... read more

When we first meet Chaplin's Tramp in this comic gem, he's in typical straits: broke, hungry, destined to fall in love and lust just as sure to lose the girl. Mistaken for a pickpocket and pursued by a peace officer into a circus tent, the Tramp becomes a star when delighted Patrons think his escape from John Law is an act. Classic highlights include a frenetic fun-house sequence, the Tramp turningia magic skit into mayhem and his teetering tightrope walk while monkeys cling to his head. This is comedy without a net!

“Apparently, this movie was the last one Charles Chaplin made during the silent era and it is yet another flick I have seen many times when I was a kid. Indeed, I remember it very well. At some point, the greatest classics directed by Charles Chaplin were broadcast on one of the French channels and my mother recorded all of them. Eventually, I was really grateful and I ended up watching this movie so many times back then. Personally, I tend to prefer this one over 'City Lights' but, I have to admit it, it is mostly pure our of pure nostalgia, I guess. Anyway, even though the plot was basically pretty basic, the whole thing worked amazingly well. Indeed, even though I'm usually a tough customer concerning comedies, I thought this one was just downright hilarious and completely entertaining f” read more
