Format: DVD
If you're anything like me, the almost semi-annual relapse and recovery of Robert Downey Jr. has been an interesting periodic feature of the morning news. After a while one begins to question why does Hollywood put up with him when there is no shortage of talented actors desperately trying to make it in Hollywood? Why would producers and studios, who are so financially dependent on their productions going off without a hitch, take yet another chance on Robert Downey, Jr? Then I saw Chaplin, and I understood.
The intensity and power of the Robert Downey's performance in this film is the stuff of Oscars and true movie legend! It's both a beautiful performance and a beautiful film!
Somehow Sir Richard Attenborough got out of Downey the kind of performance that can sustain a career, and a legend. But Sir Richard's mastery didn't stop there. He got spectacular performance out of everyone, including a young, pre-X-Files David Duchovny. (I know I misspelled that. But you know who I mean.)
In summation, Robert Downey's performance is every bit the equal of James Dean's in Giant, East of Eden or Rebel without a Cause, and maybe that's what we should keep in mind. For unlike Dean, another self-destructive personality, Robert Downey has not driven off the cliff yet, and hopefully he never will.

Format: DVD
This is a cinematic masterpiece. Wonderfully acted and beautifully filmed. Robert Downey Jr. could not have done a more masterful job portraying the great Charlie Chaplin. The film flowed well, leaving out very little of the major events in his life. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 was that it only made subtitle available in Spanish! For the life of me I could not understand why the subtitles were not made available in English! This was a major problem if one had difficulty understanding the clipped dialogue of the English accents used in the film. I would love to have the same DVD availablle with English subtitles.

CHAPLIN [1992] [15th Anniversary Edition] [Blu-ray] [US Import] ROBERT DOWNEY, JR. captures the essence of comic genius CHARLIE CHAPLIN in a compelling, nuanced performance that earned him an Oscar® and a Golden Globe® nominations for Best Actor. Director Sir Richard Attenborough’s well-crafted portrait traces Charlie Chaplin’s impoverished London upbringing, extraordinary success as an actor and director, his troubled marriages, scandalous affairs, shocking exile to Switzerland and his triumphant return to Hollywood. The huge star-studded cast includes Kevin Kline, Dan Aykroyd, Milla Jovovich, Diane Lane and Geraldine Chaplin (as her own grandmother), and Robert Downey, Jr.’s astonishing mimicry of Charlie Chaplin’s gait, gestures and accents complete a dazzlingly authentic portrait of one of cinema’s first pop culture icons.

Format: DVD
It's hard to cover a life like that of Charlie Chaplin's in a short period of time (even if that "short" period is two and a half hours). The problem is, Richard Attenborough's "Chaplin" tries to cover way too much, and in the process fails to give us much insight on Chaplin or his times. On DVD, the scene selection option is terribly wonderful because the film give different aspects of Chaplin's life seperate, sketchy vignettes. His wives and mistresses are in it for two minutes apiece, "The Great Dictator," "City Lights," and "Modern Times" each have only one scene, and if you blink you might miss the coverage of "The Gold Rush."
The film is entertaining in that it is briskly paced, and the performances are good. Robert Downey Jr. should have won an Oscar, and supporting performers, especially Geraldine Chaplin, Kevin Kline, James Woods, and Dan Aykroyd, are great. But one reason their performances are so good is because they are given no challenge. Chaplin is the only character in this movie who has more than two dimensions.
The DVD fares better. Colours are good throughout, and there aren't any visual flaws worth noting. The menu interface is pretty neat. On the extras front, there are several documentaries that are essentially promos for the film. There are quite a few production notes, including some about Chaplin's films (which, appropriately, are as sketchy as the film itself.) Hidden on the disc are some fairly illuminating interviews with Downey, Anthony Hopkins, Attenborough, and others.
