Sherlock, Jr. ★★★★★

I cannot believe what I just witnessed!

This film is just shy of 90 YEARS OLD and it is without a doubt, one of the most inspired and delightful things I have seen in my life thus far. Keaton's expressions, his inventive sequences and his timing are impeccable, and at 45 lean minutes, this baby is a well-oiled machine. I had only seen Keaton's The General before this, but in light of my Chaplin viewings, I can indeed see why there is a fan-boy rivalry as to who is the greatest of these two visionaries. More Keaton for me please, and make that a second and third helping of this one while we are at it...
