(2018) Written and directed by Peter Bogdanovich. Mel Brooks, Dick Cavett, Werner Herzog, Bill Hader. (102 min.) DCP.
A kaleidoscope of commentators rhapsodizes about Buster Keaton’s uniquely brilliant art, and a thoughtfully hilarious selection of film clips pays tribute to his Jazz Age masterpieces and fearless physical comedy. Director Peter Bogdanovich, a film historian first, is well suited to provide both biography and career overview of one of moviedom’s geniuses.
“He is one of the inventors of cinema” (Werner Herzog).
“It’s a celebration and also an invitation to some of the purest, strangest laughter the screen has to offer” (New York Times).
