Reviews

“Keaton at the height of his art.”
– Rudy Blesh

“A delightful piece of film-making within a film which is both an insight into Keaton’s own logic, and also, alas, a sort of epitaph.”
– Andrew Nickolds, Time Out

“Brimming with invention, ingenious set-pieces, and big laughs.”
– Leonard Maltin
