Happy Labor Day 2014
Charlie Chaplin had some of the following occupations in this film
Factory worker, Ship Builder, Floorwalker (night security) & Waiter.
Robert Downey Jr as Charles Chaplin in Richard Attenborough’s Chaplin (1992)
The beginning sequence
The only reason why this movie is worth seeing is RDJ’s acting. And that’s about it.
I don’t know. I kind of liked it. It was not always accurate, but enjoyable, and I think that’s all we need in a project as big as this one. (Making a film of someone’s life is not an easy thing to do - especially not Charlie Chaplin’s. But maybe I only say this, because I know his life more precisely.)
Well, being a fan (not the cooling device) I’d expect one of the greatest projects to be made on this subject. The whole script was lame, and if they spent the same amount of energy making it correct instead of fictional, it would have made a great movie. This way, it’s mediocre, with charles dickens meets the wild west sort of mixture. Plus some random slapstick. It’s like someone made a couple of dosen different sequences that were afterwards glued together just to make a feature. I’m saying this from a perspective of a person who also knows something more about his life. I saw it first a decade ago, when I had no clue who Chaplin was, and still I only remembered RDJ. As I mentioned it before, this film is about “tits and politics” and that is what frustrates me the most. There was so much more to show, there’s so much more to Chaplin than just this “imaginary” story. If they weren’t sure how to make the whole life story, they should’ve concentrated on one particular segment. The only thing that felt real in the movie was the relationship he had with his mother. On the other hand, it’s an intro to his work, and everyone should see it. Except for the people (and this will be majority of those I know and who know nothing about Chaplin but are willing to cast judgement nevertheless) who’d comment on his sex life and discredit him as an artist completely just because his sex life was shown in such a demeaning manner. I might know it’s just fiction, but all they’ll think is “oh look, there’s mila jovovich’s tits, oh look, he screwed another 16 year-old.” And then, they will gloat. And point fingers. Again. You know, there are people who do not watch silent movies? Do you know how it looks to them? These kind of things infuriate me. These things could’ve been done differently.
Anyway, it’s easy to be a general when the battle’s over, I know. But this kind of project is more than important in the history of cinema, and should be treated accordingly. If they won’t do it, who will?
Even though I haven’t seen this movie, and technically should not judge it for that reason, I see this film as utter tripe and refuse to spend my time watching it — because I know it will infuriate me with its inaccuracies and scary 1990s RDJ. Besides, there isn’t much Tramp in it, not much of his actual films… it’s very focused on shit that does not matter. Hypersensationalized bullshit — that’s what most popular modern films are — they focus very little on accuracy and will do just about anything to make a buck. If you are a Chaplin fan (not the cooling device), how about you read David Robinson’s biography or Chaplin’s autobiography if you are interested in the man behind the mustache? Don’t watch a film that tried to condense the entire life of someone in less than two hours and reportedly did a really terrible job of doing so. Only do this if you have an RDJ fetish and don’t care about the content. I know you guys are out there… and I will keep your secret
The one thing I have often wondered. Lita Grey was at the Premiere of “Chaplin”, how she must have felt when the only reference made about her - he (RDJ as Chaplin) says “she was a profoundly flawed human being” (or words to that effect).
