"Films about cons. Monsieur Verdoux turned out to be better than I'd expected, since Chaplin is not someone I usually find funny. Thankfully, he wasn't playing a cutesy, sentimental character stumbling around. As Verdoux he was darker and more interesting. American Hustle turned out to be worse than I'd expected. Seeing Amy Adams on that poster in that revealing dress filled me with lustful anticipation. But the movie was anywhere near as appealing. Mostly just a Goodfellas-type film without the bravura filmmaking. So, yeah, Chaplin actually takes this."
