Film 13: City Lights
I know I’m a few days late, but hey, at least I watched this! City Lights is my first Chaplin movie, and believe it or not, my first silent movie. To be honest, I’m really surprised on how much I enjoyed this. It was genuinely entertaining and funny.
Chaplin feels like a cartoon character with his bendy cane, floppy shoes, hat, and famous mustache, and it was great. Even after 85 years, this film was still very enjoyable. The movie was also understandable, even though there was only title cards.
Surprisingly, I thought this movie was great, and I’m excited to watch more of Chaplin’s films.
