Critic Review - TIME Magazine

Intended as a tragicomedy, if not a tearjerker, it is a two-thirds bore that comes to life in the last half-hour or so, when the old-master clown stops trying to be pathetic and reverts to his inimitable proper stuff.

STUPID, you! This movie had been having a 100% fresh rating, and now you have spoiled it. Limelight is a great movie. Chaplin was exceptional even at 60-something.
And you are a TOP critic!!! My ass!!!

STUPID, you! This movie had been having a 100% fresh rating for so long a time, and now you have spoiled it. Limelight is a great movie.

Chaplin was exceptional even at 60-something. He has gone into his own life, the struggles he faced and the humiliations he had endured.

And what's more to the point is that Chaplin NEVER tried to be pathetic. That's exactly what he should be praised for.

I understand that you had watched Limelight in a biased sense. You really are biased.

And Who the **** are you? And what is it that you are concealing your name for? Duffer!

And you are called a TOP critic!!! My ass!!!

Are yelling at the critic that wrote the review in 1952, or at the people who linked the review to rottentomatoes?
