Charlie Chaplin United States, 1931

ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film City Lights

While it has spellbinding moments such as the Boxing match and the ending that always charges my body with pure emotion, I can't quite put it to the same level as Modern Times or The Great Dictator as this film's gag can get repetitive. How many time must they fall in the water or how many times must he get thrown out of the mansion. They are not quite as ingenious as in those films. To me, it's a lite masterpiece.
