Charlie chaplin 2 When Charlie Chaplin was a little boy, a sheep escaped on its way to a slaughterhouse near where he lived. Charlie and other youngsters chased the sheep around, laughing and having fun. But when it was taken away, Charlie realized the sad finality of death and cried to his mother. That incident paved the way for the theme of Charlies future filmmaking career. Comedy mixed with pathos made perfect sense to him. He was also an everyman character, a lost soul, a wanderer - he emb

In his review of "Unbreakable" Caro admits that the duration of the film is commendable, but its ending is too disappointing to look past. He begins by comparing "Unbreakable" to the highly acclaimed "The Sixth Sense". By saying that "The Sixth Sense" viewers will be, "on the lookout for clues that might telegraph the inevitable final twist" Caro puts the idea in our minds that we should all expect the same type of ending.
