Two Line Reviews - #182

Movie: The Great Dictator (1940)

Plot: A Nazi dictator Adenoid Hynkel is ruthless with his invasions and treatment of Jews and it takes a Jewish barber - a look-alike of the dictator - to explain the barbaric acts of dictators and set things right for the suffering minority.

  • Charlie Chaplin's satire and sarcastic digs at Adolf Hitler during the fuhrer's period of supremacy - Extremely gutsy.
  • The serious underlying message with a dose of super fun through Chaplin's antics. His sarcasm at the German language is terrific & also is his serious monologue at the end of the film.
  • The rivalry and fun between the dictators of Tomania and Bacteria are enjoyable.
Gutsily, seriously brilliant
