Buster Keaton – The Art of the Gag

21 Nov, 2015 · Sascha · Film

Neues Video Essay von Tony Zhou aka Every Frame A Painting über Buster Keatons visuelle Comedy und wieso die Filmwelt ihm heute noch nacheifern sollte.

Before Edgar Wright and Wes Anderson, before Chuck Jones and Jackie Chan, there was Buster Keaton, one of the founding fathers of visual comedy. And nearly 100 years after he first appeared onscreen, we’re still learning from him. Today, I’d like to talk about the artistry (and the thinking) behind his gags.
