The Kid

The Kid ★★★★

Rewatch Review: Chaplin's films are always layered with some semblance of love, redemption, assistance, you name it, and this is easily one of his most emotional and touching productions yet. Nearly 100 years old, it's still as touching and wholesome as it surely was back then. Chaplin is stellar in this, as always, and Jackie Coogan's portrayal as The Child is simply stellar. Once again, too, Criterion absolutely knocks it out of the park with their work here. A beautiful film, as tearjerking as it is comical and entertaining.
