When Documentaries Are As Excellent As The Film It Examines...
The CHAPLIN TODAY documentary-series, featured on the Superb DVD-releases by MK2/Warner Bros, are a joy to watch and give nice insight in the films it examines, as well as the era it came from and helpful background information of Sir Charles Chaplin.
All these documentaries feature a famous or exciting director (Ouedraogo, Kiarostami, Jarmusch, Kusturica, Chabrol, Bertolucci, etcetera...) who comments on the Chaplin film and shows his admiration.
In this case the Dardenne-brothers, surely among the few Truly Gifted Cineastes on our globe, airs their warmth and respect for 'Modern Times' and Charles Chaplin.
Fascinating to see Messieurs Jean-Pierre & Luc drawing parallels to their films. And showing their gratitude for the Tramp, cinema's most well-known Icon, who made his final appearance in 'Modern Times'.
