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

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie, like all the major masterpieces directed by Charles Chaplin, I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I have noticed that, according to IMDb, this movie is supposed to be the best one delivered by this great master but I personally prefer 'Modern Times' and 'The Great Dictator' because I believe they are socially and historically more relevant than this movie which I considered as merely a romantic comedy.

"17.3. 2019 Chaplin's famous, poignant love story is undoubtedly one of the most memorable ones in the history of cinema: The Tramp meets a blind flower girl and instantly falls in love with her. The flower girl mistakenly believes that the Tramp is a rich and handsome man. Afterwards the Tramp also prevents a depressed millionaire from committing a suicide and becomes his best friend. However, his millionaire friend remembers the Tramp only when he is drunk and forgets him as soon as he becomes"

“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
