A World of Possibilities
Not only is this Buster Keaton’s best film, but it is among the greatest achievements in the history of cinema, period. While it is not a feature-length film–and thus barred from most critics’ lists of great films–it invented just about every single basic special effect known to movies (except for morphing). The story itself, about a film projectionist who desires to become part of the movies, and then does, by walking right onto the screen, made palpable the desire that we all have to be in the movies: To get the girl, to be an action hero, to outsmart the bad guys. Keaton invented meta-cinema before anyone even had a phrase for it.
This movie has entered our dreams.
short, silent, and really funny
My second silent film for the class that I viewed for my class was just as entertaining as the first, which was Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus. Buster Keaton playing the role of the movie projectionist Sherlock Jr. was very entertaining. The story is simple, yet interesting and fun, and the movie comes in at much less than one hour, 44 minutes to be exact. While there are a few points in the movie that are disjointed and not as fun, overall you can stay engrossed enough until you get to some really cool and innovative special effects, which given the technological limitations when this was filmed in the 1920’s are simply amazing.
