The Kid

The Kid ★★★★½

Not gonna lie. Midway through, probably during the pancake scene, I get this lump in my throat. Just a heartwarming story that only Chaplin knew how to make. Which is why he’s in my top ten. 

While a blast, I always thought the angelic dream sequence was out of place and that the flick ties up too quickly for me after it. Finally clicked this time around. 

Criterion DVD w/ Ai Mi.
