All these years I never rated Chaplin, but I based that on film clips featuring custard pies and
other early slapstick routines. After seeing The Great Dictator, City Lights, Modern Times and
The Circus for the first time I have changed my mind. I missed out on all the subtle aspects of
Chaplin I had never noticed before, the sensitivity of his performance and the political
awareness he demonstrates.
I would love to see Chaplin on the Big Screen somewhere, sometime, somehow....?
