i've now watched 6 of his feature length films...

watching those apart from being entertaining, was quite educational...

city lights was really funny... the great dictator too...

chaplin is undoubtedly an ATG IMHO... both as a filmmaker and a comedian...

cinema in it's purest form...

Never really got into his stuff. Probably because I wasn't brought up on it like others have been I suppose.

I just don't think his material has that same timeless value that Laurel and Hardy's does. I could still sit and watch those 2 for hours on end now, brilliance.

city lights is exquisite comedy...

"the immigrant" stands out among those IMHO...

For a romantic comedy, I found 'City Lights' to be surprisingly poignant.

I also found the tragic and dramatic moments in 'The Kid' to be rather genuine.

Though I've not seen 'The Immigrant', or many other pieces of Chaplin's work. Generally I'm not a fan of slapstick comedy, but in the few Chaplin pieces I have seen there almost always seems to be an underlying and more authentic theme.

Hence my love of 'City Lights'.
