Charlie Chaplin Amerika Syarikat, 1936

Stefan Drees's rating of the film Modern Times

"Modern Times" not only contains one of the finest Chaplin scores (and we know today that he really took care about every detail of instrumentation in dictating his coworkers how to write it down... in spite of what he told in public) but also some of the most iconic sequences of all his films like the song scene, the demonstration, the factory sequence, the roller skates scene and of course the beautiful last shot.
