MODERN TIMES

by Charles Chaplin
 

kanal(1936) Charlie Chaplin returns in his iconic Little Tramp character who struggles to survive in the modern, industrialized world. The film is a comment on the desperate employment and financial conditions many people faced during the Great Depression, conditions created, in Chaplin's view, by the efficiencies of modern industrialization. Sound familiar to life today?

Chaplin's last 'silent' film, filled with sound effects, was made when everyone else was making talkies. Charlie turns against modern society, the machine age, (The use of sound in films ?) and progress. Firstly we see him frantically trying to keep up with a production line, tightening bolts. He is selected for an experiment with an automatic feeding machine, but various mishaps leads his boss to believe he has gone mad, and Charlie is sent to a mental hospital - When he gets out, he is mistaken for a communist while waving a red flag, sent to jail, foils a jailbreak, and is let out again. Can the Little Tramp survive in a technological world?

THE LANDLORD

by Hal Ashby
 

kanalPresented by Joel Shames

Hal Ashby is a protégé of and editor for Norman Jewison (IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT). Jewison produced THE LANDLORD, Ashby's first film as director, starting a string of films (HAROLD AND MAUDE, THE LAST DETAIL, SHAMPOO, BOUND FOR GLORY, COMING HOME, BEING THERE) unmatched by any "70's maverick" filmmaker. THE LANDLORD shows all the signs of the quirky, idiosyncratic later films that so much reflect the zeitgeist of the 70's.

(1970) At the age of twenty-nine, Elgar Enders "runs away" from home. This running away consists of buying a building in a black ghetto in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn. Initially his intention is to evict the black tenants and convert it into a posh flat. But Elgar is not one to be bound by yesterday's urges, and soon he has other thoughts on his mind. He's grown fond of the black tenants and particularly of Fanny, the wife of a black radical; he's maybe fallen in love with Lanie, a mixed race girl; he's lost interest in redecorating his home. Joyce, his mother has not relinquished this interest and in one of the film's most hilarious sequences gives her Master Charge card to Marge, a black tenant and appoints her decorator.
