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

"First viewing - Apr. 18th Silent Sundays I adored City Lights. The comedy slays, the story kept me engaged throughout, and it's got heart. Only thing I'm disappointed in is myself for not watching it sooner. I'll have to watch it again."

TCM's Essentials: 52 Must See Movies (52 movies items)

"“Charlie Chaplin is film. He’s what film’s all about. He started out in the silent-screen era ad helped define it, helped create it, helped bring it into focus as an art form an entertainment form. He was a genius… I do think City Lights is his best film.” -Robert Osborne “What I love…is Chaplin’s incredible use of his body as an actor…. He must have been a man of inexhaustible energy. He was like this nuclear reactor on film…kind of the opposite of a certain film technique"

" 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.
