Who knew comedy could be portrayed so damn beautifully? City Lights is made with such a heart of gold that it’s hard not to smile throughout its entirety. Just the mannerisms and little individual components each character possesses are so so genius and amusing. I didn’t necessarily fall head over heals for City Lights, but I certainly appreciated the craftsmanship shown throughout the piece. There’s just something oddly charming about Chaplin that I can’t quite put my finger on… (Verdict: A-)
The boxing scene is undoubtedly legendary. Choreography at its finest! 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
By the way, if you aren’t touched by the ending, you might need therapy.
