This review is from: Charlie Chaplin - Modern Times  [DVD] (DVD)
My first glimpse of Chaplin and I became an instant fan. Not only is it consistently hilarious but it provides a more serious social insight of that particular time.
Charlie Chaplin is a genius and there are some very daring stunts involved as well.
I also think that the social aspect of the film is particularly relevant today and I think this is why it is often shown in schools. I really find a few parts of it very sad because little has changed in some respects of the plotline here. However, watch it and you are guaranteed laughs throughout.
