A Perfect Accompaniment to CITY LIGHTS
14 June 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

CITY LIGHTS is easily Charlie Chaplin's most subtle comedy. The blatant humor is missing, and instead the comedy comes from the smallest, most inconspicuous things. In addition to putting the film in its historical context and tracing the history of the production, CHAPLIN TODAY: CITY LIGHTS also guides the viewer through parts of the film and points out the tiny little gems of humor Chaplin works into the film. Then when you watch the film again, you see the inner genius of Chaplin at work, and you begin to appreciate the film much more.

This short documentary is similar to an audio commentary, as it has a noted filmmaker voice-over his views on parts of the film, explaining what is going on. It is an invaluable accompaniment to this gem of a film. Be sure to watch it at least one time AFTER you have seen the full film.
