Week 4: Buster Film Fest

Today at Film Forum: Buster Keaton’s Steamboat Bill, Jr., The Boat, My Wife’s Relations, Daydreams.

This is a stellar selection, folks. Steamboat Bill, Jr. is a classic Keaton film: poor soul in love, trying to get the girl, hit by a hurricane, floods, and even the entire side of a house.

The Boat is – simple & indescribable. It’s the one that clarifies why Beckett loved him so much.

Daydreams & My Wife’s Relations are two top-notch two-reelers, as well.

    Just think he did all that with no stunt doubles.
