Charlie Chaplin United States, 1928

VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Circus

A tramp in a land of illusions: he is first captured by them, in the hall of mirrors, and then adopts them until they unravel in spectacular fashion. The same acts, the same jokes, multiplied in different ways. And yet, Chaplin always comes back around: a tramp will always be a tramp.
