Finds the comedy in the dashing of hopes, though it has both the verve to be funny for funny's sake when it feels the urge and the fortitude not to tidy up every dark stroke.

The mechanical feeding sequence in Modern Times is probably the funniest routine in cinema history.

Chaplin's satiric dissection of the economy circa 1936 looks downright prescient.

Modern Times is an ungainly masterpiece, but Chaplin's ungainliness is something one can grow fond of.

Chaplin's sentimental politics and peerless comic invention dovetailed more perfectly in this film than in any other he made.

Apesar do roteiro não ter muito foco, o filme é maravilhoso, traz alguns dos melhores momentos de Chaplin e uma trilha sonora inesquecível (a melhor que compôs em sua carreira).

Your Movies (

Charlie Chaplin is the Orson Welles of comedy. One of his funniest silent films is Modern Times, a brilliant spoof on technology that's more stinging today than back in its 1936 release year.

| Original Score: 5/5

If the world is trying to suppress the little man, what better figure to rally against it than the ultimate little man, Chaplin's Little Tramp.

The picture is a two-hour almost continuous gale of laughter with sidesplitting gags generously distributed throughout the five major sequences and the several minor ones.
