I have a new post up for the Close-Up series on the MUBI Notebook!  This one is on Charlie Chaplin's The Kid, which you can watch on MUBI here, and I'd highly recommend it.  It's an essential classic and a great gateway not only to Chaplin, but to silent film in general.

Chaplin must be in the air over here this month, since there's also a two-part rumination on Chaplin's The Gold Rush by Daniel Riccuito, part personal and part historical, that you should check out as well.  Part one, and part two.
