Modern Times

Criterion Classic: MODERN TIMES (1936) Blu-ray Review

Last year, Criterion picked up the rights to the entire surviving filmography of Charlie Chaplin.  The first release in what’ll be a long-running series is my favorite Chaplin film by far, MODERN TIMES.  It’s one of the top Criterion releases of the year, and that truly makes it one of the best of the best.  It hits the street on November 16th (next Tuesday), so yes, that means that it will qualify for Barnes & Noble’s currently-going 50% off Criterion sale.
