  1. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film The Kid

    One thing's for damn sure, Chaplin's first feature was a success. He knows how to make his audience laugh, as well as cry.

  2. Bruno's rating of the film The Kid

    Tanto se escreveu sobre Chaplin e seus filmes, não sei que acrescentar. Seja novidade, seja repetição, dizer que Chaplin é a bondade e a doçura dos cavalheiros despojados de tudo além destas qualidades e das acções que as têm, estas bastam a quem as faz, esta universalidade é talvez ingénua, ou talvez seja exacta e precisa, mau grado os líderes de comícios, com uma cortesia começa virando o mundo cruel e a autoridade

  3. Scott Dubin's rating of the film The Kid

    You get the sense that Chaplin's films had a big influence on Looney Tunes. I'm not sure this one entirely holds up. There are some very touching moments- and the dream sequence with the angels was clever. But the poverty of this film's depiction of its era doesn't feel like the poverty of today. (Chaplin's later film, modern times, feels a bit more "modern").

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film The Kid

    Cette tendre amitié entre Charlot, vitrier lunaire, et Jackie Coogan, l'inoubliable Kid du film, reste un éternel et somptueux mélodrame de l'histoire du cinéma... www.cinefiches.com

  5. MistaRichard's rating of the film The Kid

    A story with a smile -- and perhaps, a tear.

  6. Renton47's rating of the film The Kid

    The melodrama and hurried ending make this less effective than some of his shorts thus far, but maybe even more impressive for what's happening behind the camera - construction of the Hollywood mirage. An unprepared child star, ruling star presence, bitter disputes, grooming by those in power. And on screen work so magical that we might forgive the high cost of its existence.

  7. Nachtreich's rating of the film The Kid

  8. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film The Kid

    This one is just so beautiful. This is a film that is both extremely hilarious and poignant at the same time. As most of Chaplin's work is. The balance between sad and funny is meticulously arranged with the melancholic score. Which was also composed by Chaplin himself by the way. Sometimes, it is the most simple stories that affects you the most. This is the case here. A masterpiece.

  9. Aybige Tek's rating of the film The Kid

    I even studied it. It is a super gentle experience to watch this movie! Every second is a gem!

  12. ceknklsn's rating of the film The Kid

  13. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Kid

    This film reminds me of my childhood in ways. Not because of all the poverty and debatable child abuse, but because of the imagery and feel of the piece. Chaplin may have the warmest sensibility in cinema. However overwrought it may be to today’s standards it is still wonderfully powerful emotion that shines through, and you never get the sense that the little tramp is faking any of it.

  14. yovargas's rating of the film The Kid

    Some of it is pretty cute, I guess? C-

  15. Ethan's rating of the film The Kid

    One of Chaplin's greatest achievements. Nobody blended comedy and tragedy quite like Chaplin did. A true master of comedy.

  16. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Kid

    Chaplin's left-wing affectations were hard to hide, even near the beginning of his acting/directing trajectory. Lovely stuff.

  17. Aprilia Gunawan's rating of the film The Kid

  18. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Kid

    One of Chaplins first classics (I also think The Immigrant is classic, even if its a short, its quite excellent). Great chemistry between Chaplin and little Jackie.

  19. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Kid

  20. .Diana.'s rating of the film The Kid

  21. Dignan's rating of the film The Kid

    Excellent demonization of social services.

  22. Hollywood Overdose's rating of the film The Kid

    An ongoing burlesque Chaplin success with explicit emotional ostentation and manifest. Even then dreams were already personalized by deep unique fantasies: how the unconscious fills the holes in the reality of the character's self-restraint mind is priceless.

  23. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Kid

    A charming little film with some interesting social insights.

  24. Murat Erdem's rating of the film The Kid

    Dönemine göre çok ileride.
