World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: KEATON

Less of an overt sentimentalist than his contemporaries Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton often portrayed ironically detached characters who were at odds with the physical world, but demonstrated a unique ability to adapt and persevere in the face of adversity and absurdity. Keaton was also an inventive director, part engineer and part vaudevillian, who used all the resources of early cinema in service of his famed "trajectory gags" and seemingly impossible stunts.
