Directed by Peter Bogdanovich
2018, USA, 102 min

Wednesday, January 23rd screening introduced by Kevin McDonald.

Former critic and director of The Last Picture Show and Paper Moon, Peter Bogdanovich has just completed a “beautiful cinematic love letter to the greatest of all silent-era comedians, Buster Keaton. Through well-curated film clips from Keaton’s seemingly bottomless résumé of shorts and features from every stage of his career, we get a front row seat to the miraculous bits and death-defying gags from such classic films as Steamboat Bill, Jr., The General, Sherlock Jr., and Seven Chances. Bogdanovich wrangles an eclectic mix of talking heads to testify to Keaton’s unique genius including Mel Brooks, Richard Lewis, Bill Hader, Dick Van Dyke, and Werner Herzog.”- Entertainment Weekly

Reviews

Hats off and three cheers to Peter Bogdanovich for perceptively bringing the brilliance of one of Hollywood's comic greats to fresh attention in this lovely and sharp-minded new documentary.
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
Affectionate and informative... full of sidesplitting, eye-popping clips from “The General,” “Steamboat Bill, Jr.,” “Our Hospitality. Wonderful.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
