Film: "The Great Buster"
This soulful tribute brings deadpan genius Buster Keaton back to life. Wildly ambitious, visionary, fearless and more physically gifted than any comedian before or since, Buster Keaton is revered and beloved, an enduring icon. And yet we barely know him. Peter Bogdanovich's soulful tribute pulls us close, from Keaton's too-strange-to-imagine childhood—he was treated as a projectile as an infant, and as a toddler was a veritable vaudeville star—to Buster's unstoppable rise to fame. Then we see the cruel late decades of obsolescence and commodification.
