I love old Buster Keaton movies. Not only because, after all this time, they are still perfectly enjoyable to watch, but also because they are top notch study material for everybody interested in storytelling. Keaton is a master. Impeccable timing, deadpan delivery. Whether you are a film maker, comic artists, cartoonist or whatnot, whenever you rely on visual storytelling to get your message across, you’ll probably benefit from studying Buster Keaton movies.
This documentary is not for wussies who suffer from that “short attention span syndrome” you hear so much about these days. More than two and a half hours! Yes, sir. But it’s Friday, no? The week is over. Relax. Get some friends to join you or invite that lovely girl from downstairs, why don’t you…?
And if not, there is always the weekend.
