In The Great Dictator, Chaplin played a Jewish Barber who was often like The Tramp, but not officially. In Monsieur Verdoux, he is playing something brand new. It is a character without the hopeful aspirations, instead he is a serial killer who keeps marrying and murdering women so he can financially support his original family. How do the guys react to Chaplin’s much darker experiment of a film?
