The film as a whole means no more than Charlie Chaplin means. Nobody has ever been able to say what that is, but by the present showing it is something quite timeless and priceless, and more human than the best of alien words lugged in for definition. Full Review
It is a gay, impudent and sentimental pantomimic comedy in which even the anachronisms are often as becoming as Charlie Chaplin's cane. Full Review
In spite of its awe-inspiring machinery and underlying significance, is really just an old-style Chaplin picture, and I don't know what better anyone could ask. Full Review
...[A] delight with its abundance of famously hilarious set pieces...
Rating: 4/5 -- What elevates Modern Times - above even its cleverness - is its sense of spectacle. It's as entertaining as it is socially and politically resonant. Full Review
[Chaplin added] a layer of tart political commentary to sequence after sequence of inspired physical comedy. -- Grade: A
Charlie Chaplin's hilarious 1936 spoof at the Industrial Age. Highly recommended. Full Review
Charlie Chaplin bid farewell to silent comedy with this funny and poignant masterpiece. Here Chaplin stars as a factory worker fed-up with the job and his tyrannical boss (who keeps an eye on all his employees via a big-brother TV monitor). When he meets and falls in love with an orphaned street waif, the two dream of a nice suburban existence...but the cops are never far behind, chasing the vagabond couple.

- MODERN TIMES was an original selection to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1989.
- Costar Henry Bergman also served as assistant director of this film.
- This was Chaplin's final "silent film" (although he does sing a song consisting of some "nonsense syllables"); it was made when virtually all others had abandoned the form for sound. Because Chaplin had total financial control of his films, as well as a totally devoted audience, he could do exactly as he liked -- even if it wasn't in fashion.
