Critic Reviews for Charlie: The Life and Art of Charles Chaplin
It is crammed to the gills with a fine selection of the beloved comic's best work, with talking-head commentary serving to deepen and enrich the enjoyment.
It whets the appetite to experience again Chaplin's luminous body of work.
A well-organized, informative and inevitably entertaining portrait of the man who revolutionized screen comedy and who arguably became the first mass-market, commercialized media figure.
Richard Schickel, a noted film critic and historian, has used the familiar techniques of historical documentary to construct a critical biography of one of the dominant figures in 20th-century popular culture.
Made with enormous affection; the Chaplinesque sentimentality, which so many silent fans cite when voicing a preference for Keaton or Harold Lloyd, is employed here, not exploited.
Audience Reviews for Charlie: The Life and Art of Charles Chaplin
A wonderful, touching, informative, well-done and heartbreaking documentary of the greatest comedic talent of all time. Great interviews with Chaplin's children, Martin Scorsese, Johnny Depp and Robert Downey jr, not to mention numerous film critics and Chaplin biographers. This documentary also features many many great clips of his work. This is definitely a great watch but it also makes me feel like an idiot for not seeing more than half a dozen of Chaplin's films.
Wonderful documentary on the tramp
