小罗伯特·唐尼主演的《卓别林》影评:他是个天才也是个人(图1)

Sir.Richard Attenboroughs cradle-to-grave, rags-to-riches biopic of Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) is anything but a hagiography, and should be more appositely re-titled as CHAPLIN AND HIS WOMEN, since the meat of this lofty work sees Charlie (Downey Jr.) gyrating from one wife to another (four in toto plus other conquests) meanwhile the more intriguing facet of his cinematic creative process is ruefully taken a back seat.

It is a warts-and-all treatment, yet somehow overreaches itself on the“warts” department, Chaplin is repeatedly portrayed as a love fool who cannot overcome his sexual predilection of younger girls (viz. jailbait) starting from his first crush Hetty Kelly (Moira Kelly) to first wife Mildred Harris (a barely 16-year-old Milla Jovovich striking the bull’s eye of the ingénue sedcution with flaming lips) an ill-fated union with the independent Paulette Goddard (a classy Lane) until his last spouse Oona O’Neill (Kelly again to finish the circle) a none-too-subtle way of intimating that the right one is actually the one who gets away, which to a certain degree, cunningly shifts the blame on Hetty, the undertone seems to suggest that if she had accepted Chaplin“s marriage proposal before he would put his name on the map in the celluloid boom town, his subsequent failed marriages would have no place in the history, a low move that hurts the film”s integrity. Plus, save for her physical resemblance, we have no inkling why Oona is the one for keeps becauseAttenborough never shed any lights on her story (although Kelly is game enough to take on the dual role with slight discrepancy).
