  1. nouvelle vague 1960's rating of the film Film

    When Beckett meet Keaton,when two geniuses from different worlds came face to face."Film" is a challenging film,that can be viewed on different levels."E"(eye)is like a paparazzi camera,following "O"(object)recording his every move.It's the eye of the all seeing God,who knows our every sin.It's the one person we can never escape.Our selves!An interesting failure.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Film

    Une des seules expériences cinématographiques de Samuel Beckett, qui rappelle, bien sûr, son style épuré et ses obsessions théâtrales (ici la peur du regard) ainsi que le dépouillement rigoureux de ses décors, et dont la réalisation s'inscrit plutôt dans un certain cinéma proche de la recherche et de l'expérimental, avec un constant hommage au muet.

  4. Aivaras_Z's rating of the film Film

    Quite an interesting attempt from the master of absurd and an actor from a dying age of cinema to escape the all-seeing eye of the spectator. An artifact of cinema experimentation.

  9. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Film

    10 - I'm seen, therefore I am. Not merely a film about existentialism, but existentialism through film. Keaton, arguably cinema's greatest physical practitioner, is unable to evade the omnipresent eye of the camera, always behind him, betrayed by the very frame that made him who he is, while his own vision/being deteriorates. Observation becomes suspicion, and companionship persecution. Beckett remains Beckett.

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film Film

    aka SAMUEL BECKETT'S FILM, a great work of existentialism starring Buster Keaton. Screened at Pacific Film Archive, a long time ago, this one is burned into my memory long after other films have faded.

  13. Andrea Rizzo Pinna's rating of the film Film

    Un incubo kafkiano. Keaton incarna la deformazione interiore di un individuo arreso alla sua stessa vita. Si concede solamente allo sguardo di una sedia priva di ogni giudizio. Il testamento artistico di un pilastro del cinema mai troppo riconosciuto.

  14. Misho's rating of the film Film

    Beckett and Keaton! And yet, what a pity...

    Beckett, Bishop Berkeley and Buster. Fascinating

  18. T. J. Harman's rating of the film Film

    I wanna go back to a time when 2 completely different legends like Buster Keaton and Samuel Beckett could work together and make films like this.

    Well, not the best film ever, but it sure is a challenge. Actually it's one of the greats. 5 stars (no less stars possible).
