The Great Dictator (1940)

“Üzgünüm ama ben imparator olmak istemiyorum. Bu benim işim değil. Ne kimseyi idare etmek ne de ülkeleri fethetmek istiyorum. Elimden gelse, herkese, ister Yahudi, ister zenci, ister beyaz olsun tüm insanlara yardım etmek isterim.

Good Tool, Bad Tool

If I were forced to choose just one movie to be my favorite, it would have to be “The Great Dictator.”  This film by Charlie Chaplin is both comedic and tragic, a light-hearted but pointed critique at the rise of fascism in the world, particularly notable because America was still peaceful with Nazi Germany at the time.  1,295 more words
