Summary: Playing a tramp struggling to survive in a modern industrial society, Charlie Chaplin created one of the most elaborate cinematic critiques of the effects of mass production on 20th century life with Modern Times.
"One of the many remarkable things about Charlie Chaplin is that his films continue to hold up, to attract and delight audiences."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Do you have to be reminded that Chaplin is a master of pantomime? Time has not changed his genius."- Frank S. Nugent, New York Times
"Chaplin's sentimental politics and peerless comic invention dovetailed more perfectly in this film than in any other he made."- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"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."- Hollywood Reporter
