Silent Perfection

If you've never been exposed to a Chaplin film, or a silent black & white film in general, this would be the one to watch first. It will make you fall in love with that golden era of film making. Either this, or Chaplin's 'The Kid'.

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

Review of City Lights

One of my biggest movie-related regrets that I hadn't seen a single Charlie Chaplin film. 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.

City Lights is another ta... read more

“the only bad point is the development time do not feel a decent time

on the other hand, the rest of the film is simply brilliant

all the scenes are well done and most fun and at the same time they do not have to be a very repetitive comedy

a solid and perfect story one that not reach modern times but is still amazing

everyone should see it one of the most beautiful movies ever made

"Charlie Chaplin's 'City Lights' is perhaps the most iconic of all the director's films and yet upon its release it must have felt a little like a film out of time. Sound cinema had begun its rise just after the success of Chaplin's previous film 'The Circus' and the increasing dominance of 'talkies' proved something of a threat to the next project he had in development. Despite the increasing obsolescence of silent films, Chaplin opted to forge on with 'City Lights' as he had originally envisage"
