City Lights

Another Charlie Chaplin disappoint here.

Of all the Chaplin films I have seen so far only The Circus and The Kid have been stand-outs, the others were just silly slapstick fests, which is what this one was.

There were no innovative, funny, or clever scenes in this that really stood out, although the boxing scene had it’s moments. Reviews on the interwebs though call it “excruciatingly funny”, “touching”, and such like.

It isn’t bad, but I was expecting more.

Buster Keaton is for me the best silent comedian ever, he never disappoints.

Date watched: March 12th
