Enthrallingly Bizarre
26 March 2010 | by frankebeSee all my reviews

This has got to be one of the weirdest movies made by a traditional filmmaker. The first third is quite funny. The middle third, where Buster is confused by the two girls, is too embarrassing for me to enjoy. BUT THEN, the last third is amazing. Keaton must have written this. I cannot imagine anyone else coming up with anything so surreal, so entertainingly bizarre. You really have got to see it to believe it. And yes, it certainly does whet the imagination to wonder what Keaton might have done with the final shot if Educational had given him the money to do whatever he wanted. It would have to have been something well beyond what I would cook up, since nothing I can think of would work as well as the way they shot it. We REALLY need these Keaton movies restored.
