52 Years in 52 Weeks: 17/52
I was specifically looking to watch something to lift my spirits tonight, and this did the trick. “A picture with a smile— and perhaps, a tear.”
My first Charlie Chaplin picture and it did not disappoint. I'm not sure how anyone could not like this, honestly. I watched it twice! I intentionally selected one of his earlier, but still highly acclaimed, works; now I happily feel as though I have a lot to look forward to, both in terms of the development of an art form and some sure-to-be-great movies.
