    Modern Times


    Gosh that Paulette Goddard is beautiful. Holy cow. 

    I love this film and its incorporation of sound into the silent film format to elevate the action. Whether it’s a small snippet of dialogue, the turning of a large crank or even Chaplin’s factory worker performing a musical number, Modern Times is a delightful blend of Chaplin’s prowess as a performer and director with the changing technology of film in the modern age Chaplin found himself in post-sound.

    “Can you see now?”

    Chaplin’s masterpiece. Its emotional highs hit as well as it’s emotional lows. That final scene when they touch hands just brings me delight.

    The whole third act feels like tumbling down a rabbit hole, but in the best way.
