The Great Buster details the life of one of America’s most celebrated filmmakers and comedians, Buster Keaton. Keaton’s style and fertile output during the silent era created his legacy as a cinematic visionary through the development of his trademark physical comedy and deadpan expression.

Our take

Best known as a director, Peter Bogdanovich is 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 luminaries such as Werner Herzog and Quentin Tarantino.
