  1. SpacePirate's rating of the film Sidewalk Stories

    Great modern rendition of Chaplin's The Kid. I am unfamiliar with other works by Lane but after viewing it makes me want to seek them out. The ending is super cool and took me by surprise. A very interesting film, with a nice mix of comedy and deep emotions. Worth a look

  2. Feng Ling's rating of the film Sidewalk Stories

    this is not a good/helpful review, but: it sure did offer some great relaxation by the bathtub.

    I can honestly say I've never seen anything like this. Awesome, just awesome. I wish I could get my hands on more of Charles Lane's work, or that he made more!

  5. Nan Bauer's rating of the film Sidewalk Stories

    Graceful, sweet love letter to a vanished New York. Charles Lane is wonderful as the artist. Not easy to pull of modern-day Chaplin, but he does it.

  6. mpho3's rating of the film Sidewalk Stories

    Love the street scenes of late '80s NYC and parts of the score but any film requires a suspension of disbelief, and I just couldn't get all the way there. Whether SS is uniquely sophisticated but overly cute or overly sophisticated but uniquely cute, it left me trapped between wanting to watch and wanting to turn it off. Glad I stuck it out because I did appreciate its commentary on class issues. 3.5 stars

  20. El Biffo's rating of the film Sidewalk Stories

    Independent Black cinema, and (almost entirely) silent cinema! Beautiful and inspired re-make of Charlie Chaplin's THE KID. Quite stunning and moving, this is the most original and creative re-make I have ever seen. A labor of love, and you can feel the love when you watch it. Just released on blu-ray, highly recommended for anyone who loves silent cinema or has any feelings whatsoever.
