The Chaplin Puzzle (1992)
A Solid Introduction
A two-part introduction to Chaplin, from his "humble beginnings" to his fame, but little past his feature-length era, focusing on the creation of the Tramp persona and the restoration of the missing short, "Police." It has a nice custom composed soundtrack by composer Soren Hyldgaard, which is available on its own soundtrack.
A good little documentary, with good narration by Meredith, and some pictures I have never seen anywhere else, also with a restored version of the short "Police," which is the main value of this little-known, made-for-TV documentary. Nothing in here that an experienced Chaplin fan wouldn't already know, but a good watch.
Crazy Moon (1987)
Odd, but memorable
I haven't seen this movie in a few years, but I found it so memorable that I have been searching for it for some time, at least to rent, just so I can see it again.
This film is wildly different from what you'd expect from an "80's romantic comedy", and has a distinctly Canadian flavour. While Hollywood likes to believe that it can portray romance between atypical people, it really is the role of the indie or non-American film to do that justice, and, as a not-so-normal preteen (who, by the bye really loved swing during the age of New Kids) this movie really struck a chord with me. If you are tired of watching 27-year-old super models try to act like unaccepted young people, this movie is for you.
Brooke is odd and insists on being himself, but he is still lovable... That is a good message for anyone to see.
Why, oh why, is this not out on DVD??
