Greatest Charlie Chaplin MoviesRiffandMagenta Including both his feature length films and his short films. Charlie Chaplin is a legend and every film he ever made should have place on this top ten.
The Top Ten
This film is an absolute masterpiece. The funniest and most moving film in history. And arguably the single greatest film ever made.
Classic Chaplin, who was the best at mixing comedy with pathos. No one was better at making you feel so strongly about a character and this film was the epitome of his genius.
The best thing I can say about this film is how much it surprised me. Every time I thought I knew where it was going, it completely subverted my expectations in the best way possible.
I've seen all his major films and this is by far not only his best but is also the best film ever made; I've seen Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Vertigo etc and the only reason this film isn't ranked higher is because it's silent and in black and white. The final scene alone is the best ever to be put in celluloid.
For me it's this film, followed closely by The Great Dictator. - truckturner
best slapstick movie 80 years ago & best slapstick movie today!
some of the funniest moments in film history.
I find it disappointing that people think "Limelight" is better than this. "Modern Times" is one of the most entertaining movies ever. - Virtuoso
The issues he touched with this movie still exist even after 80 years. The first part of the movie is like a visual summary of Marx's alienation theory. The rest of the movie is like a summary of the struggle of the mankind. And he tells us everything in a funny but also clever way.
As with all feature-length Chaplin-movies. sadness and humour, cruelty and compassion of humans, slapstick and cinematographic art go hand in hand. - punksnotdead
Everyone raves about this one and it's easy to see why - the best story and some of the funniest moments in film history. - RiffandMagenta
Simply outstanding... I would suggest not to miss chance to watch it. Biggest stress buster.
One of the greatest comedies! A brilliant film
Who other than Chaplin dared to take the piss of Hitler at the height of Nazi-Power? - punksnotdead
the king of political satires, betterthan kubrick's dr strangelove. funny, and serious, simply a masterpiece
The Great Dictator is so good. I love Charlie chaplin. He has very good humor. When I saw the movie I just loved it. I really recommend it.
I voted for this film because I watched it, and it is just the best mix of sadness, revenge, happiness, and mostly hilariousness! I recommend this film to any Chaplin fan.
This was my first movie of Charlie and in 2 minutes I just fall in love with him, this is a fantastic and great film, always will be my most favorite film of Chaplin
Hats off to the child artist.. Unmatchable performance by charlie, awesome film with fantastic scrennplay
Probably the saddest movie ever - Xiv14Yoc
City Lights is my fave, but this one needs to be higher up
I love all his movies, but if I'd be held at gunpoint to decide which is my favourite, it has to be Limelight. - punksnotdead
LIMELIGHT has the passion, the acting, the classic script and the most important thing of all, one of the most beautiful music themes ever written (limelight), comedy with heartbreak still stands up today, a faultless combination rarely seen today in movies
One the funniest yet saddest films ever. The bittersweet blend gives one of the greatest films ever. - RiffandMagenta
Not that funny. Dialogs are great. But this is not one of the greatest movies of CC. It must not be put on top. It should be put on number 10. Besides story is not even of moderate quality.
This is the first movie of charlie I have watched... what a stunner it is... oh my god
One of the greatest romantic comedy of all time. The music by himself makes it the best.
It has to be my favorite. It was HILARIOUS! I've gotta check out City Lights sometime. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak
This, I feel, was one of the greatest Chaplin movies despite it being of a slightly darker character compared to his earlier films. His acting is absolutely incredible, though and the character of Verdoux is amazing. - RiffandMagenta
Greatest film n acting by Charlie chaplain very nice actor in world!
This is a severely underrated Chaplin short... it is beautifully executed, is absolutely hilarious and it's a cute story. - RiffandMagenta
I am fan of Charlie Chaplin.
He was a greatest person.
This is, in my opinion the greatest Chaplin short ever. There are no words to describe it's brilliance. Watch it. - RiffandMagenta
His last great film... it's got less of a story line but it's no less hilarious! - RiffandMagenta
In his early career Chaplin filmed lots of shorts. Most of them where just funny gags, but a few had something more. One of those shorts is The Immigrant
The Immigrant tells the story of man arriving to the States, and the many problems he has after arriving to the Land of Libery.
This short had me absolutely crying with laughter. Its simplicity lends itself to the best slapstick ever. Genius. - RiffandMagenta
An amazing short... really cute and well executed. - RiffandMagenta
Often underappreciated, this movie is a gem
This is laugh out loud funny, minus a lot of the butt kicking and punch-ups which were a large part of the Keystone films. Chaplins' adversaries are common items which often get the best of him.
