"A comedian does funny things. A good comedian does things funny." -- Buster Keaton

Film Phil Hall encounters Film written by Samuel Beckett and starring Buster Keaton: "Frankly, Film is strictly of curio value and is merely a blip in Beckett and Keaton’s respective careers. Having Keaton in the film is strange, since the viewer is obviously waiting to see him. But his face is not seen until the end of the movie – and then, inexplicably, he is wearing a black eye-patch. Schneider’s direction is lethargic and the payoff of two Keatons makes little sense."
