Peter Middleton, James Sinney / US, 2021 / 114 min.

Many primarily know Charlie Chaplin for his role as the iconic homeless person The Tramp with whom he became synonymous. Narrator Pearl Mackie brings Chaplin to life, not shying away from his dark sides; from his problems with the American authorities, the media’s influence on his perception and his turbulent private life.

Chaplin is lauded as the great filmmaker of legendary films such as The Kid, Modern Times and The Great Dictator that still haven’t lost their relevance today. However, who was the person behind this genius of all trades? Peter Middelton and James Sinney (Notes On Blindness, 2016) have created a comprehensive documentary about Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977).
