Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

City Lights (1931)

Directed by Charles Chaplin

Starring Virginia Cherrill, Florence Lee, Harry Myers, Al Ernest Garcia


People love this one, but it’s not one of Chaplin’s best, in my opinion. Modern Times weaves a good story with Chaplin’s physical comedy much more effectively.

An unconventionally ambiguous ending for its time. Also not sure why it’s called City Lights.
