Hard Luck (1921, Edward F. Kline and Buster Keaton)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Feb 18, 2019

Hard Luck starts as a… failed suicide attempt comedy. Nothing morbid, just absurd and slapstick. And a little dumb. Star, director, and writer Keaton always has dangerous ideas for ending his life, but never particularly good ones. There’s a lot of physical humor from Keaton during this section; read more

A Gag Every Minute: Buster Keaton in The Blacksmith (1922)

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Feb 14, 2018

We have a smithy at our country house. Yes, yes. We don’t use it anymore as no one alive in my family is a graduated blacksmith (!) but the woman who gave us this house (my grandfather’s cousin) was the daughter of the village’s blacksmith. She was quite a character and would put read more

Critica Retro Posted by Lê on Feb 13, 2018

O Vilão Ainda a Perseguia (1940): Buster Keaton e a paródia The Villain Still Pursued Her (1940): Buster Keaton and parody Ainda bem que os valores mudam. Na minha opinião, há progreso quando  há cada vez menos conservadorismo e condenação dos atos. A sociedade progride quando read more

Book review: My Wonderful World of Slapstick, by Buster Keaton

Critica Retro Posted by Lê on Feb 20, 2017

Book review: My Wonderful World of Slapstick, by Buster Keaton Em 1957, um filme chamado “O Palhaço que não Ri” chegou aos cinemas. Era um filminho estranho. Donald O’Connor fazia o papel de Keaton e a produção usa muita licença poética – ou seria cinematográfica? read more

Seattle International Film Festival 2016: Buster Keaton on the Big Screen in The General (1926)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jun 11, 2016

The General (1926) has endured as one of Buster Keaton's greatest features, because it perfectly balances the wit and physical abilities of his stone-faced hero. Today a near capacity crowd enjoyed a 4K restoration at the Egyptian Theater, with a new symphonic score from Studio Ghibli composer Joe H read more

The Haunted House (1921, Edward F. Cline and Buster Keaton)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 5, 2015

The Haunted House has some excellent gags. There’s a lot of set gags in the finale, when bank clerk Keaton ends up in the–well, the haunted house. His coworker–a delightfully evil Joe Roberts–is actually a counterfeiter who uses the haunted house to print money; the haunted read more

Neighbors (1920, Edward F. Cline and Buster Keaton)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 15, 2015

I’m not sure what the best thing is about Neighbors. There’s the comic pacing, there’s the comic acrobatics, there’s the story, there’s the acting. Co-directors Keaton and Cline quickly introduce this fantastic setup–Romeo and Juliet across a fence in an alley an read more

The Scarecrow (1920, Edward F. Cline and Buster Keaton)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 8, 2015

The Scarecrow opens with a lengthy practical effects sequence. Buster Keaton and Joe Roberts are roommates and they have an elaborately designed “concise” home. It’s like IKEA’s dream, only with manually pulled ropes instead of some kind of remote control. (There’s als read more

Convict 13 (1920, Edward F. Cline and Buster Keaton)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 24, 2015

Convict 13 has some undeniably funny stuff in it, but directors Keaton and Cline rely almost entirely on physical comedy. By physical, I mean actors doing choreographed comedy. Sometimes it’s Keaton, both for the smaller sequences and the larger, or Joe Roberts as a gigantic, revolting prison read more
