Modern Times Storyline: Chaplins last 'silent' film, filled with sound effects, was made when everyone else was making talkies. Charlie turns against modern society, the machine age, (The use of sound in films ?) 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... When he gets out, he is mistaken for a communist while waving a red flag, sent to jail, foils a jailbreak, and is let out again. We follow Charlie through many more escapades before the film is out.

Very amusing.
Arguably Charlie's best film. Maybe not his funniest but his best because there's so much more to it than the Keystone Kops kind of pratfalls that he so commonly used.

Frankly I don't know how the guy did it, being so consistently humorous without using any words. All of it depends on a story simple enough to be followed visually and on Chaplin's genius for mime and situation construction. There ARE some words spoken on screen -- this was his last holdout against talking pictures -- but none of them involve people speaking directly to one another. There is a song at the end with gibberish lyrics. And the rest of the speaking is always filtered through some mechanical medium, a record player, a radio, a television set.

Charlie was accused of communism somewhere along the line and pretty much thrown out of the country, after which he lived in Switzerland. You couldn't tell he was a Commie from this movie. It comments on its time, of course, the Great Depression, and Charlie and Paulette Goddard are two poor people. Management is shown as callus, playing with a jigsaw puzzle and reading newspapers while the workers slave away on the assembly line. There is even a communist demonstration. But it's all played for laughs. One of those red warning flags falls off the back of a truck passing down an empty street. Charlie picks up the flag and waves it, shouting after the truck. As he begins to hurry after the truck, still shouting and waving, a horde of dissatisfied workers silently falls in behind him and he's arrested. Poor people steal, but they only steal food. If having sympathy for the unemployed is communism then roughly one American out of three was a communist, because that's roughly what the unemployment rate was. "Modern Times" is no more communistic than, say, "My Man Godfrey" or "Salt of the Earth" or "The Grapes of Wrath."

Besides that, Charlie is no classical Marxist. Marxism posited a transition from "false consciousness" (the feeling that one's miserable poverty was due to personal failure or bad luck) to "class consciousness" (the realization that exploitation by the property owners was at fault). Charlie is no activist. He fumbles every job he gets. The other workers are hardly sympathetic. Charlie's not a working class hero but a black sheep. The opening shot of the herd of sheep hurrying past the camera includes one black sheep in the middle of the flock and it's hard to imagine that this was accidental.

Actually, Charlie had lost a lot of respect in America because he had an eye for young girls. His second marriage resulted from a sixteen-year-old girl's (faked) pregnancy. Paulette Goddard, who became his third wife, maybe and maybe not, was twenty when this movie was made, and Charlie was forty-three. In any case -- boy, if you want to get Americans heated up just combine sex with politics. A sure-fire winner for the puritans. (It may have cost Goddard the part of Scarlet O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind" because she may have been living in sin with Charlie at the time.)

I don't want to spell out too many of the gags because I don't want to spoil them but be alert for the feeding machine that goes berserk and shoves lug nuts down Charlie's throat and hits him in the face with a corn cob. Charlie looks as if he's strapped helplessly into his seat, but his hands were free under the rotating table so that he could manipulate the fiendish devices himself.

The first time I saw this movie was in the Arts Theater on Springfield Avenue in Irvington, New Jersey. When Paulette Goddard first appeared, the man on my right chuckled and said, "Now that's a good-looking babe." On my left, my marmorial ex laughed out loud during the feeding machine episode for perhaps the only time in her life. There can be no higher recommendation.

Hilarious comedy with a serious message
"Modern Times" is in my top 5 films, and #2 in my list of favorite comedies. Charles Chaplin is arguably the most talented human being, nevermind film maker, that ever lived. I first saw this treasure about 8 years ago, and I watched it again recently to make sure that it really WAS funny, and that I had not given it too much praise because it was simply a Chaplin film. "Modern Times" passed my test with flying colors. I laughed hysterically from start to finish. Each and every scene is innovative, well thought out, and executed with the genius that only Chaplin possessed. Among my favorite scenes are the "automatic worker-feeding machine"; the jail scene in the cafeteria when The Tramp accidentally sprinkles cocaine on his food, thinking it is salt; and the roller skating scene in the department store. No special effects or computer animation, just pure, simple, genius.

The storyline in "Modern Times" is purposefully naive, a trick Chaplin used time and again to bring a profound humanitarian quality to his films. Watching this film is comparable to watching a Warner Bros. cartoon, which coming from me is a sincere compliment. The level of physical comedy in "Modern Times" is on par with the masterful short films of Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, and others.

Finally, as was the case with most of his later films, "Modern Times" is a serious social commentary. Its message is as relevant today as it was more than sixty years ago when it was released. In fact, it is arguably even more relevant today, and unless the world changes drastically in the future it will continue to be. "Modern Times" is essentially the story of a simple but extremely kind man caught in the traps of industrialized society. The opening scene, which compares a crowd of workers boarding the subway to a flock of sheep, is Chaplin's warning against standardization, mechanization, and other facets of life which rob men and women of their individuality. Chaplin always tried to speak for the downtrodden, because despite his enormous success and wealth, he never forgot where he came from. In the end, "Modern Times" is a reminder that no matter how bad things are, you can still smile. Charles Chaplin has made more people smile than almost any other, and his legacy of love and laughter lives on in his films. Its up to us to keep his legacy alive.

Modern Film
I admit my rating is biased since I talked a girl into seeing it with me and that we saw it on the big screen.

But the fact remains he showed the world that a film doesn't need sound but a good story and great acting.

But the fact remains the film was well-paced and didn't seem out of date in its outlook of the world, which shows that we didn't invent fast paced editing.

But the fact remains the subjects he brings up are portentious. The boss wanting to maximize production, worker's strikes, drug use, jail life, he has to actually work to make money isn't always true, and life isn't always that grand; where Matchstick Men has a feel good ending that is false here Chaplin ends his film genuinely in a bittersweet ending. It still amuses me how he was locked up in the film for mistakenly being labelled a Communist while in a few years he is prevented from reentering the US.

It's worth watching many, many times. And if you have a pair of wrenches in your hand, you will never look at a girl the same way twice.

PS I still can't figure how many times he stumbled before getting the roller skating scene just right.

Historical Cult
Definitely, one of the best movies of all time. If you are young and meet with Chaplin for the first time, it is the first movie that you need to see.

I am sure you'll find this movie very unique and great. With the aid of this movie, you may change your perspectives through people and maybe even your life style. It's a difficult job to foreshadow 21th century in 1936 but Chaplin did it with a perfect way that's why I adore him and his movies.

Furthermore, it represents many features of capitalism -today's economical and social model- with a satirical way of point. You may watch very "direct" political movies but don't like them because they focus on a specific kind of audience. However, Chaplin directed/wrote his movies for all sort of audiences in a very repressive time. He risked many things to make us watch these masterpieces.

A fabulous movie
Modern Times- Now, this movie is the first Chaplin flick I've seen

yet, and it was very funny. Charlie Chaplin keeps the pace and light

speed, has you laughing around every corner, and even makes

you feel for some of these charecters, though they aren't very well

developed. Chaplin skipped all the rules of cinema with this film,

including plot and well developed charecters and personalities.

But he pays it off while writing, producing, directing, and starring in

this near silent film about a man who works in a factory but

encounters many problems including unemployment, love, jail,

and all that jazz.

The comedy in this film can be enjoyed by just about everyone,

young and old. The film is a landmark in cinema in that it has

beautiful music, very witty and funny writing, and a likeable lead

charecter. It's hard not to enjoy this film, especially if you are into

slapstick, endless sight gags, and general excitement, no matter

what is happening. I strongly recommend this film to viewers

young and old, and hope that you will take the time to watch this

short and sweet Chaplin film. 9/10

A definition of "classic"
Usually you watch old films trying to be generous with your criticism because of the huge difficulties the directors and actors faced those days. This one is a miracle. A comedy that stands tall even in today's cinema, starring perhaps the best comedian who lived on earth. At some parts it is hilarious, but the social message Chaplin wants to pass is always there, making Modern Times even more important. The love story is also very sweet and Paulette Goddard is a remarkably beautiful woman! So what to say about this man's genius? Charlie Chaplin acts, directs and even composes the music! And by all means he does a magnificent job. You can find great symbolism and a lot of political references, we all have to remember that Chaplin was accused of being a communist (which of course was a pride for intellectuals, given their accusers). I have unlimited respect for the Great Charlie Chaplin.

A Timeless Gem!
MODERN TIMES is Chaplins final silent film. However, he used modern sound techniques in recording the soundtracks.

There are parts of this film that will make you laugh out loud, and other parts that will bring you to near-tears. The dialogue is almost non existent. The music and sound effects are topnotch.

Chaplins timing was great. Every time I see this film I see something that he does that I never noticed previously.

If you have not seen this film, then by all means do. You won't regret it.

Chaplin's Genius: Two Levels of Enjoyment
The irony (to a 16-year-old) of a 1936 film titled "Modern Times" notwithstanding, I can understand why anybody would like or dislike the film. On the surface, it's a black & white feature with scarce dialogue & cheap slapstick humor. I personally don't like slapstick comedy, but I realize that was Chaplin's forte. Besides, coming out of the silent film era, films had very little else to do for humor. Imagine a mute stand-up comedian (amen)!

However, there's a second level. The opening title shot establishes that this film concerns the American dream. The next shots show a mass of herded sheep, then a mass of herded people on the street. Later, Chaplin's boss observes an automatic feeder meant to eliminate a worker's lunch hour; this demonstrates the drive for inhuman efficiency.

Then, Chaplin meets the gamin, and they dream of a life together; Chaplin describes a dream home to Goddard's character. The film contrasts the ideal with their soon-acquired home, little better than a barn with a lean-to shed. This is a classic example of Chaplin's struggling common man in a time much larger than himself. I could go on, but it's 12:30 AM...

Chaplin's ingenuity lay in the fact that he could convey a stark message while simultaneously providing cheap laughs/entertainment. Directors such as Michael Moore fail in that respect; I found Fahrenheit 911 alternating between thought-provoking and ridiculous, but unceasingly difficult to sit through. Perhaps somebody should have written an entertaining drama or satire about an inept president named after some piece of vegetation...well, you get the idea. That's what Chaplin would have done (see: The Great Dictator).

Modern Times
There are many arguments regarding the actual beginning of the modern era because individuals cannot come to a consensus regarding the factors and traits of society which represent the start and the continued progression of the modern era. In Modern Tines, Charlie Chaplain attempts to portray the industrial and technological boom and evoke feelings of resentment for governments and the sponsors of industry by use of satire, comedy, and drama. Although Modern Times is a near-silent film, the core themes, mainly industrial progression and the idealistic deterioration of society, spoke volumes during the Great Depression and even in present day.

Modern Times by Charlie Chaplain was the first box office comedy released in the 1930s and perhaps the most marvelous of Chaplain's illustrious works in the 1930s and 1940s. There are several prevalent themes in the movie, the first one being the adverse effects of industrialization and technology. The second is the redundant nature of life as result of technology and over reliance on industry. The third major theme of the movie is the hardships faced by the lower classes during the Great Depression. The major bias presented in the movie is that technology and industry is overwhelmingly negative and will contribute to the downfall of American society.

Charlie Chaplain's beliefs lean to the extreme left of the 1930s and 1940s which shared common ideology with Marx and the Communist Revolution. Many Americans felt that American society could not progress in an age dominated by machinery and technology. Chaplain's efforts to downplay the benefits of technology fall short of success because his notions and assertions are depicted on the big screen and not in real life. While the main character was supposed to represent the typical factory working residing in one of the many up and coming suburban areas of the US, the main character was viewed by many critics as a degenerate that was not able to conform to the new standards of society. Even though Chaplain includes plenty of satire, he attempts to contradict the thoughts and notions of modern times by portraying the downfall of the main character. Nonetheless, the film provided much needed comical relief in an age dominated by poverty and hardship.

Humorous tale of life during the great depression
Charlie Chaplin's "Modern Times" was released on February 25, 1936. This film would be Chaplin's last silent film. Charlie Chaplin reprises his role as the Tramp in this film set during the Great Depression. Chaplin continues his mastery of silent theatric humor in this film, whose storyline many people would have a hard time finding humor in. This film is fittingly produced in black and white. Modern Times is based in the midst of the Great Depression. The main theme of the film is to make the viewer aware of the conditions of the Depression and how they affected most people. This film raises our awareness of issues such as poor work conditions, unemployment, poverty, hunger, and the harsh reality of broken families during this time in history. Charlie Chaplin plays the Tramp who recently becomes unemployed after having a nervous breakdown, as a result of being worked too hard. The Tramp struggles to find and keep a job in these tough times. Discouraged, he resorts to trying to get thrown in jail so he has a place to sleep and food to eat. During his attempts to go back to jail, the Tramp meets the Garmin, played by Paulette Goddard. The Garmin is a young runaway orphan who recently lost her family, as a result of her father being shot in the street. The Garmin and the Tramp are now homeless, hungry and poor. They come find hope in each other and find a new determination to survive together and beat the odds. This film follows their struggle to overcome the odds, earn an honest living, keep nourished and maintain hope throughout all of the obstacles they encounter. Charlie Chaplin wrote, directed, composed and produced this film. Chaplin's masterful use of sound draws the viewer into the scene. In this film, sound is vital in establishing mood and atmosphere of scenes. One defining scene in the film that is a perfect example is a scene where the Garmin loses her father. The Garmin and her sisters are on the dock collecting wood (happy, joyous music is heard), next a gunshot is heard and the music becomes frantic. The Garmin sends her sisters off and she rushes to see what happened. She arrives at her father lying in the street and takes him in her hands as the music turns sad and she mourns her father's death while holding him in her hands. Chaplin also uses masterful body language to portray the emotion and tempo of the film. This is a vital component to this film, like so many other silent films. One good example of this is when the Garmin and Tramp are sitting on the side of the road. The Garmin suddenly comes to tears and dramatically places her head in her arm to cry on. The Tramp and the audience are fully aware of her mood at that moment. This films overall theme is similar to that of Cinderella Man. Even though these films were produced about 70 years apart, they share a theme. Regardless of the circumstances you are dealt, you should never give up. While Cinderella Man is based on a true story of the Great Depression period, Modern Times is based on Charlie Chaplin's unique portrayal of the period. I would strongly recommend viewing this movie to gain a better understanding of this period in American History.
