Ken Kimmelman, Emmy award-winning filmmaker and Aesthetic Realism consultant, says about this upcoming class in his course “If It Moves It Can Move You”: Opposites in the Cinema:
There is nobody more loved in the history of the cinema than the great Charlie Chaplin. The Little Tramp is immortal because of the way he puts opposites together with such depth and humor. “Chaplin,” said Eli Siegel, “could get together tenderness and cruelty, fear and nonchalance; and he could do it with the way his whole body worked.”
Some of the films I’ll be discussing in this class are: City Lights; The Kid; Shoulder Arms; The Rink; Modern Times.
