Monsieur Verdoux

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jul 31, 2015

In which Chaplin, finally and once and for all, abandons the Tramp character. And shocks everybody, and offends them more, and even sort of upsets the equilibrium of world cinema. And reveals that he’s his own man, stubborn, strange, intractable, and as great a filmmaker, as great an artist and mirror and conscience and goad and empath, as we have ever seen, or ever will see.
