28- Modern Times [8.0]
A factory worker fed-up with his job and tyrannical boss (who keeps an eye on all his employees via a big-brother TV monitor) 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.
Bookmarked by two phenomenal slapstick sequences, Modern Times displays Charlie Chaplin’s artistic genius. Conceptually, the film is timeless. Paulette Goddard is quite the beauty, and makes for an excellent counterpart to Chaplin’s Tramp. You can watch Modern Times with your parents, your grandparents, or your kids–all ages are likely to enjoy the comedy.
