More About The Great Buster: “Vastly entertaining! Certain to please Buster Keaton aficionados and newcomers alike,” says critic Todd McCarthy. “In his 1949 essay ‘Comedy’s Greatest Era,’ James Agee suggested that ‘Keaton’s face ranked almost with Lincoln’s as an early American archetype; it was haunting, handsome, almost beautiful, yet it was also irreducibly funny.’ “To watch The Great Buster: A Celebration — Peter Bogdanovich’s affectionate and informative new documentary — is to appreciate Agee’s insight, and also to marvel anew at Keaton’s cinematic feats. The film presents a compact, tactful biography and also a valuable explication of ‘Keatonesque’ in its most sublime varieties.” – A.O. Scott
