Wonderful Chaplin adventure!

Charlie Chaplin's name has grown synonymous with classic comedy. Throughout the early 1900s, the extraordinary silent movie comedian featured in short films ranging from 10-30 minutes. These years denoted the birth of one of the most recognisable movie characters in existence: Chaplin's Little Tramp. There is little doubt that Chaplin knew how to put bums on seats. He also knew how to move his aud... read more

Perhaps it’s because I saw this one after watching his lionized classics like City Lights, Modern Times, The Gold Rush, and The Great Dictator that I found The Kid to be more of a beautiful introductory for what was to come than a film that packs the same amount of weight and heft that the others contain. Maybe it’s also because it didn’t make me feel as joyous as I was expecting from a Chap... read more

Note: For this review, I watched the original 1921 version of The Kid (as opposed to the 1971 cut, which includes a musical score composed by Charlie Chaplin).

Silent films have always fascinated and impressed me for as long as I can remember. Modern cinema has the advantage of words and improved cinematography, effects, etc., that makes it easier and easier to draw the audience in... read more

"1.4. 2019 "The Kid" starts with one of the most shocking depictions of moral corruption in cinema: A desperate mother abandons her baby in the back seat of a car. A couple of car thieves find the baby and leave him on the street. When The Tramp discovers the baby he quickly learns that it is his destiny to keep the child and raise him. None of the characters are completely innocent but their motivations differ from each other. Charity is a duty to some, and a joy to others. The main characters "

Movie Reviews (2001-50) (50 movies items)

" More a social commentary than a comedy to be honest, but it is an important comment on child wellfare, poverty and women who leave their children on the doorstep of others. Chaplin is completely overshadowed by the kid too who charms and warms the viewer in every single scene."
