Jesús Placencia’s review published on Letterboxd:
Master filmmaker, Charles Chaplin, makes his feature film debut in The Kid (1921) producing, writing, directing, starring and composing. The result is one of the most heartfelt films of all time. Packed with outstanding cinematography, what's probably the best child performance of all time, and great chemistry between the two leads, The Kid is a heartbreaking drama that, awkwardly for a Chaplin film, doesn't include many laughs, but a passionate drama about fatherhood, companionship and true friendship. Few times has the Tramp fought so passionately for someone he loves, and that alone makes this film worth watching.
