Modern Times

In one of his most beloved comedies, Charlie Chaplin stars in this hilarious spoof of society that is surprisingly still relevant today ---- even though it was made in 1936. The first thirty minutes or so must be among the funniest moments ever in a film; the parts thereafter are only moderately funny with sentimentality mixed throughout. Chaplin succeeds in creating a wonderfully great and enjoyable film that makes wonderful use of strange sound effects. Modern Times marks the first time that audiences get to hear Chaplin's voice even though it's in gibberish.
