Dave Kehr
Chicago Reader
Charlie Chaplin finally got around to acknowledging the 20th century in this 1936 film, which substitutes machine-age gags for the fading Victoriana of his other work. Consequently, it's the coldest of his major features, though no less brilliant for it. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Remains Chaplin's most sustained burlesque of authority. Full Review
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
An ungainly masterpiece, but Chaplin's ungainliness is something one can grow fond of. Full Review
Ty Burr
Boston Globe
Chaplin's sentimental politics and peerless comic invention dovetailed more perfectly in this film than in any other he made. Full Review
