Stranger Says:

Every so often I’m reminded that there are lots of people who haven’t seen any Buster Keaton films. The miracle of Keaton’s physical and cinematic gift is a mandatory addition to any cultural education worth a damn, but more importantly: You won’t see a funnier movie in this festival. (SEAN NELSON)

SIFF Says:

Buster Keaton's iconic slapstick comedy of an engineer who must pursue his beloved locomotive straight through enemy lines during the Civil War is presented in a new 4K restoration with an original symphonic score from Studio Ghibli composer Joe Hisaishi.
