  1. rgarrettrun's rating of the film One A.M.

    A classic film, Charlie Chaplin is a comedic genius for his time. Only one man can make walking up stairs that funny. Chaplin does everything for the film, theres no camera or editing tricks, he brings alive his character through his motions, creating a classic comedy film.

  2. Fab S's rating of the film One A.M.

    Oh Charlie, but how are you able to do all these things. Genius

  3. joseph.mcfarland99's rating of the film One A.M.

    Chaplin's ability to tell a story with his facial expressions is astounding. In a film with no dialogue and occasional text boxes, the ability of the actors to communicate the situation is imperative. The look of pure terror Chaplin showed when confronted with the tiger rug perfectly expressed that he felt he was dealing with a real animal. Some of the effects were great as well, such as the taxi fare spinning.

  4. Andrew Maxwell's rating of the film One A.M.

    I didn't like this movie the lighting and background music helped set the mood but the content of the movies was very poor. Granted this movies was only 22 minutes long it could have been extended a few more minutes to make the movie a little interesting or at least a little bit funnier. There were a few parts that were funny, but there were a few parts that I couldn't quite understand the meaning of the movie.

  6. Antares Rising's rating of the film One A.M.

  7. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film One A.M.

    Chaplin's drunken odyssey to get to bed the movie- hilarious!

  8. Monkey Flix's rating of the film One A.M.

    Mildly amusing early Chaplin. Most of the gags go on for way too long.

  9. Max's rating of the film One A.M.

    Charming - the music is fantastic by the way.

  10. filmingilman's rating of the film One A.M.

    The restoration is incredible, and earns an extra half star just for that. Fun, physical comedy. Some of the gags are rather predictable, but ultimately it has considerable charm.

  11. bodhishin's rating of the film One A.M.

    Still enjoyable and fun even if it's been over a 100 years when it was initially released!

  12. Paul Rot's rating of the film One A.M.

    Geniuses sometimes do crap.

  13. G. Thomas Esmay's rating of the film One A.M.

    Only Charles can make a 15-minute-plus gag about having trouble getting up the stairs funny.

  14. Slappy McGee's rating of the film One A.M.

    Solid Chaplin effort. Great slapstick and gags throughout. Really solid performance. A drunk gets dropped off at his house and he makes numerous attempts to get out of the taxi, get in his house, and battles the furniture and decorations in his home as he tries to get upstairs to go to bed. Very simple concept full of great physical comedy. Chaplin throws his body around with great abandon. Great stuff.

  15. FISCHER's rating of the film One A.M.

    Un superbe one-man-show de l'├ętonnant Charlot qui nous rappelle avec bonheur les fac├ęties de son homologue comique, Buster Keaton... www.cinefiches.com

  16. LauraPalmer's rating of the film One A.M.

    Christmas with my beloved Chaplin

  17. Daniel S.'s rating of the film One A.M.

    The same gags over and over again. One of Chaplin's least interesting early works. Already forgotten.

  18. RoRoRoro's rating of the film One A.M.

  19. Cal Cleary's rating of the film One A.M.

    Repetitive and obvious, but drunken slapstick is universal, particularly when performed by a master. Could have been solid gold 10-15 minutes shorter, but Chaplin never fails to make me giggle. To steal from Barton Fink: Charlie Chaplin. Drunk in a house full of props. Whaddaya need, a road map?!

  20. Eric Rucker's rating of the film One A.M.

    The common man's Nijinsky! Cosmo Kramer is his grand-nephew. I wonder, too, if this was an influence on Scorsese's After Hours. Remember Teri Garr's clock? Wonderful, improvised-feeling tango score by Carl Davis (six steps forward, six steps back) with Debussy and other witty nods. Here's Davis on scoring the Mutuals: https://silentlondon.co.uk/2015/04/16/music-for-charlie-chaplin-carl-davis-on-scoring-the-mutuals/

  21. John Crawford's rating of the film One A.M.

    There are some early films you need to see. This is one of them.

  22. jamesey's rating of the film One A.M.

    We've all been there. I literally laughed out loud a handful of times at this 30 minute film from 100 years ago. That's much more laughing at full-length modern films.

  23. roserine kenlew's rating of the film One A.M.

    Evidence that minds in 1916 had a longer attention span. With no appreciation or prior exposure to vaudeville, One A.M. reads like an interpretive modern dance piece. Chaplin is absolutely enchanting to watch and the struggles strike a chord with this alcoholic.

  24. Armando's rating of the film One A.M.

    Empty, contrived slapstick. One of Chaplin's least interesting works
