    Man, I don't even know what to write. It's simply great, kind of like if "Chungking Express" got to the other end of the cinematic spectrum in terms of colour, theme, and pretty much everything.

  • Limelight

    ★★★★

    Is this a comedy? Because my heart hurts badly. Chaplin's age did not stop him from creating beautiful works of art which reflected the nature of human kind. "Limelight", a comedy of the artists, a comedy of humanity, as time erases what has been, some are left to be figures we look only as something to be regarded, whose accomplishments soon become insignificant and as these figures abandon the center stage with no round of applause the path to depression is an inevitable fate.

    I think the final speech is so powerful and well-known there is no risk of spoiling it. In this speech, I think we see one of Chaplin's truest faces. Not that of the little tramp who makes funny faces and tripps and falls and we can't helpt but laugh. Not, we see a troubled man speaking his mind about a troubled world.

    Watch the first story and you will feel melancholia, watch the second story and you will feel melancholia but with a smile. How to not enjoy "Chungking Express"? It feels so freewheeling and gives a general sense of a sad happiness if such a state is possible. All I know is that I now have a smile on my face.
