What Got This Director Here?: Mostly The General.
My Favorite Past Experience Was…: Sherlock Jr.
What Did I Watch: His short, Cops.
Where Does He Fit: While not quite living up to the nonstop brilliance of One Week, Cops’ 18 minute running time still keeps it at the same level as that and Sherlock Jr, with the primary purpose of Buster’s antics in this one to be treated like dirt by everyone who he tries to help, even when he does so horrendously (the smashed vases are particularly great for a laugh). I am still a Chaplin partisan, but this is lots of fun.
Most Valuable Asset: His face.
Most Excited For: College.
Did They Deserve a Spot?: Yes, but hooray for Chaplin winning the stupid war.
Coming Up Next: Poland’s greatest humanist, Krzysztof Kieslowski.
