The Mission…

Every existing Chaplin film, viewed and reviewed in order, from 1914 to 1967. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages and the 100th anniversary this year (2014) is too good to miss. On (or as near to) 100 years after each release, I’ll write about every one of Chaplin’s 82 films (mostly shorts!). Check back here from 2 February 2014 for the first entry: Making A Living (1914).
