chaplinChaplin (1992)
English- Biopic
Rated “PG-13”
Runtime- 145 min
dir. Richard Attenborough
 

This one has been on my imaginary “To watch:” list since I first got Netflix. Definitely worth getting around to.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

Not too much to be said here. A fairly accurate biopic about one of the most well-known men from Hollywood.

Acting: 2/2

A ton of star power here with Robert Downey Jr. in the title role. The whole cast definitely tries their hardest to bring this story to life.

Photography/Set: 2/2

Gorgeous and varied setpieces captured in a sweeping style. The cuts keep up wih the emotion of the plot perfectly.

Sound/FX: 2/2

A lot of work was put into capturing the “look” of the different periods throughout the picture. There was also a lot of filter stylings put in a well, to give it that historical feeling.

Misc: 2/2

Really, really good.

VERDICT: 9.5/10

About as close to perfect as you can get.
