Doesn’t even remotely make a lick of sense but Jason Mamoa absolutely knows what’s up. He alone makes this fast food film watchable.
The Great Dictator 1940
I need to rewatch The Kid but this might be my new favourite Chaplin film.
The Great Dictator is anti-war satire at its finest. It combines memorable set pieces and Chaplin’s signature humour with themes that still resonate today. It culminates in an iconic final speech that hits so hard.
The film is set apart in his filmography because amongst his usual bag of genius comedic artistry, there’s the bold, risky narrative that leaves an impact well after the credits roll.
Strangers on a Train 1951
That shot of Bruno staring at Guy amongst the tennis crowd whilst everyone else’s head swings back and forth like a mii in wii sports is FREAKIN GLORIOUS.
