With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on class struggle during the Great Depression, Modern times, though made almost a decade into the talkie era and containing moments of sound (even song!), is a timeless showcase of Chaplin's untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy"--Kanopy
