  • I haven’t seen The Great Dictator yet, but if it was up to me my pick for the next Chaplin movie in the Criterion Collection would have been City Lights. I also heard that Some Like It Hot was going to be released by them which in my opinion is the perfect Valentine’s Day movie. Watching two guys escape and hide from the Valentine’s Day Massacre dressed up as women is as good as it gets!
