“A wonderful appreciation of a great American comic and filmmaker.” –The Hollywood Reporter
Buster Keaton is one of the most iconic comic geniuses of all time, and a true visionary—of hilarious pratfalls, brilliant sight-gags, and cinematic storytelling. Filled with restored clips from such classics as The General and Sherlock, Jr., this celebration of Keaton by the famed director of The Last Picture Show also includes witty commentary from such contemporary fans as Mel Brooks, Werner Herzog, and Dick Van Dyke.
Film critic John Russell Taylor will introduce both screenings.
