The Golden Age of Buster Keaton
Rated
The favorite comedian of both Frederic Garcia Lorca and Samuel Beckett, one of the true geniuses of the silent film - in a compilation of scenes from his greatest period. Here is the matchlessly eloquent James Agee with a few words about Buster: "No other comedian could do as much with the dead pan". He used this great sad, motionless face to suggest various related things: a one-track mind near the track's end of pure insanity, mulish imperturbability under the wildest of circumstances, how a dead a human being can get and still be alive, an awe-inspiring sort of patience and power to endure, proper to granite but uncanny in flesh and blood...Perhaps because of his "dry" wit, there are people who never cared much for Keaton. Those who do cannot care mildly.
