When I was going to watch this film on DVD for the first time, I had absolutely no idea what I was going to make of it but when I did see I thought it was a lovely, romantic and hilarious silent masterpiece! Modern Times takes you through a series of hilarious disasters regarding the factory worker's journey getting back involved in life after he ended up in prison. It is a very beautiful story on... read more

Modern Times is classic Charlie Chaplin slapstick comedy, and a timeless experience. The film marks one of Chaplin's most potent movies that still has bucket loads of relevance to typical contemporary audiences.

In one of his final silent movies (more or less), Chaplin plays a worker at a local factory who struggles to live in an industrial society. In a nutshell, the film essentia... read more

工場の作業をこれ程ユニークに表現した映画ってないと思います。まるで人間が機械の一部になってしまったか、機械に同化してしまったか、そんな感じがします。

Chaplins last 'silent' film, filled with sound effects, was made when everyone else was making talkies. Charlie turns against modern society, the machine age, and progress. Firstly we see him frantically trying to keep up with a production line, tightening bolts. He is selected for an experiment with an automatic feeding machine, but various mishaps leads his boss to believe he has gone mad, and Charlie is sent to a mental hospital.

"Charlie Chaplin's first overtly political feature film, 'Modern Times' was made as a comment on desperate employment and financial conditions during the Depression, something which Chaplin partially attributes to modern industrialisation. While Chaplin was always viewed as a staunchly left wing artist, there is also a conservatism inherent in his opposition to progress but it is balanced by his ever-present humanism which asks the important question 'what price progress?' Chaplin's resistance to"

"First viewing - Aug. 5th Best new-to-me film for August (3-way tie) I checked out Modern Times from the library, and since I knew it's a silent film I watched it early to kick off my Saturday after my errands were done. There are some wonderful comedic moments that had me laughing heavily and often, and I liked the way the story was basically four smaller pieces tied together to make a whole. Paulette Goddard shines on screen and proves to be up to the task of balancing the film with Chaplin ve"
