Recensioni

Gorgeously filmed in the mountains of Oregon, the film frames Keaton’s amazing tricks with a predominance of long traveling shots using the steam engine and tracks as the guiding elements of the film’s visual and comic style… He was interested in making his comedy interact with and respond to the physics of the real world, just as he was interested in using the camera to expand beyond the confines of theatrical comedy.

The General is a masterclass in comic direction, with Keaton’s simple setups allowing him to find both big laughs and subtle, almost throwaway gags within the same frame. He also pulls off a series of remarkable tracking shots as he clambers across the moving train — the editing fluidly pulling us from one set-piece to the next.
