Brilliant Chaplin stuff!

"We've just discovered the most wonderful, the most marvelous poisinous gas. It will kill everybody."

Charlie Chaplin quickly became one of the greatest film comedians in cinema history. His films are constantly full of such witty satire, quirky characters and a mixed bag of hilarious gags.

With The Great Dictator I feel that Chaplin has really excelled himself. Alth... read more

To be honest, even though I enjoyed Chaplin’s later work like ‘Monsieur Verdoux’ and ‘Limelight’, I wasn’t exactly blown away by these movies (I should re-watch them again though). On the other hand, you won't hear me complaining about this amazing and timeless masterpiece. Where should I start? Even though it was released 13 years after the end of the silent era, this was Charles Chap... read more

This is definately the most serious film from Charles Chaplin of the ones that I have seen so far from him. This film is very serious obviously because it is a war film. It was a rather serious film too because of how the story was written especially when it was made. It was funny that Chaplin was ripping off Adolf Hitler with all the speeches, walks, impressions etc. It was probably scary aswell ... read more

In Chaplin's satire on Nazi Germany, dictator Adenoid Hynkel has a double... a poor Jewish barber... who one day is mistaken for Hynkel.

"19.2. 2020 "The Great Dictator" was controversial when it was released for several different reasons. American authorities were concerned that Chaplin's film would hurt relationships between USA and Nazi Germany, but the film was released anyway and it became one of the greatest classics and true milestones of the American cinema. When Chaplin was planning "The Great Dictator", he had to face his greatest challenge yet: he had to abandon the Tramp character who was loved by countless people all"

CheoFuenmayor posted a review 1 year, 8 months ago

“A pesar de ser una de las obras más influyentes de la historia del cine debí decir que la gente más casual puede encontrarla un poco lenta y aburrida, sobretodo sino le llama mucho la atención las películas de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

A mí personalmente me gustó bastante y puedo imaginarme lo que significó para alguien de la época esta cinta, trata temas que en ese momento eran sumamente sencibles de manera sutil y humorística, pero al mismo tiempo muy clara.

Pero incluso más que a los amantes de la historia la recomiendo a quienes disfruten el humor del siglo XX tipo Chespirito y apasionados del cine en general.” read more
