  1. jamshid's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    It's a very good and thoughtful black comedy if you could ignore Chaplin's pretentious act. The way he looks into the lens-a habit of his silent days- does not make any sense here.

  2. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

  3. steeeeellaaaaa (Iulia N)'s rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    If Chaplin would've continued his quest for dark humor and perfected this persona like he did with the tramp, it would've been great. This is the kind of movie that could really use a remake to pump up the black comedy, to really combine slapstick with murder, something that wasn't truly possible at that time because of the censorship...

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    Chef-d'oeuvre incontestable d'une tranquille noirceur... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Aardsy's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    Was this pro-lady murder? Well, it was a hoot.

    The only movie I like from Charlie Chaplin so far.

  8. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    At first, M. Verdoux can seem like a stunt, or a piece of performance art: a beloved comic icon making a film that looks and sounds like comedy but is too dark, bitter, and uncomfortable for laughter. Then the writing reveals a film about the trauma of the mid-20th century whose balance of cynicism and naivety may be the most nuanced and sophisticated thing Chaplin ever did. And he threw in some real laughs too.

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    Chaplin had a great talent for taking very serious subjects and putting comedy in them. He also had a great knack for pacing and timing which on great display in this film.

  11. James Mackin's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    Charlie Chaplin does a black comedy in which he murders rich women for their money. Very fun.

  12. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    Chaplin begins with a lateral tracking shot through a cemetery, an ominous tree, the inevitable shadows. MONSIEUR VERDOUX is Chaplin at his most sociologically & philosophically resonant. His aesthetic of comedy is inextricably fused with questions of ethics, of pessimism & optimism. Chaplin revolutionarily undermines the opposition between good & evil. What does propriety conceal? Train wheels: persistent & horrid.

  13. SpacePirate's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    A great little film. Not sure why people tend to dismiss it. My favorite Chaplin talkie

  14. El Biffo's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    Chaplin's leftist sentiments are no secret in this film, and several years later, he was refused re-entry to the USA, because of his political views. Here, he portrays a remorseless serial killer; his crimes are nothing compared to that of corporate warmongers, and he has no qualms about saying so. Chaplin turned his back on America, returning only after 20 years, when he was honored with an Academy Award in 1972.

  18. HSBilly's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    murderous comical chaplin.

  19. Enrico Gaudenzi's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    Il miglior Landru di sempre, non a caso da un'idea di Orson Welles... Quasi anche troppo buono per essere un serial killer...

  20. Shōten's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    charlie chaplin = childhood memories

  21. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Monsieur Verdoux

    I'm not quite sure how I feel about this. As a social outcry, it's truly engaging as Chaplin puts the hypocrisy of society in the LIMELIGHT (Pun intended). That said, let me say the following. I never agreed with people who say that Chaplin desperately wants everybody to love him. I always thought that his work came from a genuine place. Here, the fact that he refuses to acknowledge his moral corruption puts me off.
