Happy Monday morning! Hope you had a great weekend. Let’s start the week off with a little bit of admiration…

You know who Charlie Chaplin is, right? Yes, he’s that guy who was in all those silent movies a long time ago. But, do you really know who Charlie Chaplin is?

I recently got to see a screening of one of Chaplin’s best known movies, City Lights, at our local independent movie theater. Yeah, I had seen some small parts of Chaplin’s work before, but I had never watched one of his films from the beginning to end. I loved it. I’m a huge fan now.

Some people consider City Lights to be one of the best films ever made. Ever. I guess that would make Chaplin the best film maker ever, because he  wrote, produced, directed, AND starred in the film. He definitely had a vision, and he did everything to make it come to life.

It was funny. It was touching. It was silent, but it didn’t need words. It’s a pretty incredible piece of artwork. People say he was a perfectionist – he worked tirelessly to make each scene just as he envisioned. I’d say it was worth it. Chaplin was definitely a man before his time.

You should watch it.
