    This was just what I needed.

    I've been all gloomy and in my thoughts all day, but this turned me upside down and had me smiling and laughing for it's entire run time.

    God, my mouth hurts from laughing and smiling so much.

    The fact that a film released over 80 years ago can have such an impact and make you laugh like crazy decades after it's release proves that Modern Times is a timeless classic and one of the best films ever made.

    A new all time favorite.

    My first Jean-Luc Godard and I am happy to say it did not disappoint.

    I found the way it was constructed and told really unique, and the protagonist was a really interesting character.

    That's all, I'm just relived that this wasn't a disappointment after the underwhelming experiences I had with Stalker and In the Mood for Love.

    The cinematography is beautiful, although the shit colored filter was not. 

    I got the whole meaning about desire, but I sort of which they didn't have to scream it in your face with the like three poetic monologues.

    The protagonist (the savior or whatnot) is sort of annoying, especially near the…

    Just finished watching this on the plane and was reminded of why I love this film so much. This is my seventh watch, and every time I'm left feeling a different way. Sometimes I'm left feeling crushed, other times somewhere in between sad 
    and happy, but today I was left feeling strangely optimistic. I feel hopeful, empowered, and overall joyful. Makes me feel like everything's gonna be alright. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices to accomplish your dream, and that's…
