City Lights is absolutely lovely, charming. That Chaplin set is on my short list.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Cinephile: did you watch the City Lights twice in a row?
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye

Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

City Lights

i just watched the Chaplin documentary in box set 2 last night.  it was really interesting and sort of sad how tough his life got at a certain point.  there also seemed to be a condescending attitude though towards any of his message films by those interviewed like Modern Times or Great Dictator like they were too preachy.  like i think woody allen was saying something about how he should've stuck to movies like the Circus which were just funny.  did you watch that cinephile?
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Someone do a visual defense of this movie. But just show the scantily clad pictures of Anne Hathaway.

It was the first thing I watched when I opened up the set. I enjoyed it.

That is utter BS. How the hell could you say that about the 'Great Dictator'. That was a hella ballsy movie. And not ballsy like 'Faranheit 911' and all that Jazz.

Right now I have Disc 5/6 of Freaks and Geeks in my player (and I am getting Dancer in the Dark syndrome, despite laughing at it in another thread).
