anarresti's rating of the film The General

This is such a perfect movie. Amazing editing, when it was done manually. Brilliant and hilarious! A timeless movie, made in 1926 "about" the Civil War. Buster Keaton "fights" for the Confederate Army, and we can see it now (or maybe I'm too naive) without any political conotations, just for the fun of it. Most of the movie is set on a moving train, which is an achievement in itself.
