A fine black comedy, not one of Chaplin's best, but still offers some illuminating moments.
March 29, 2004
Arguably the crown jewel in the Chaplin canon.

The film is not only an account of the moral slippage of one man but the record of a far larger, seemingly uncontrollable escalation.

Chaplin's most fully-conceived talkie.
May 24, 2003
Decidedly not Chaplin's best-loved movie, but an especially provokative one, that boasts both his typical humour and a darker, politicised streak.
May 20, 2003
An engrossingly wry and paradoxical film, screamingly funny in places, sentimental in others, sometimes slow and devoted to an unusually serious and sobering argument.
April 2, 2003
Probably Chaplin's best talkie -- a masterpiece of black comedy.
October 30, 2002
..one of those overreaching "important" films that insists a little much on moralizing.
October 14, 2002
This later entry from Charlie Chaplin is a bit talky, but it's also eerily amusing and a lot darker than we often associate with "The Little Tramp."
January 1, 2000
A film of serene elegance and sharp teeth.
