The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web

One of Chaplin's brilliant comedies, he provides scene after memorable scene. The technical wizardry in this (including the sets and a few sound effects) are the best ever to be seen in a Chaplin film. The best scenes are the factory sequences, where Chaplin wreaks havoc on the gigantic mechanical works of the factories. Don't forget to see that final poignant shot. In Chaplin's last silent film, he found a way to continue the adventures of the Little Tramp and still make him seem fresh and unique, without having his character speak one word of sound (except for a nonsense song "Smile", which doesn't count since he sings it). Truly a great classic.
