Our take

Best known as a director, Peter Bogdanovich was also a renowned critic and historian. In this rousing documentary, the New Hollywood icon celebrates the legacy of the great Buster Keaton through a trove of restored materials and interviews with such luminaries as Werner Herzog and Quentin Tarantino.
