A Random Movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this movie from my friend who likes it, I decided to check it out. To be deceitful, I wasn't sure what to expect, because I'm not that familiar with Buster Keaton. This movie came out in 1924 when there were a lot of silent movies. Basically, it's about a guy and some stuff happens and honestly, I wasn't blown away. To conclude, it's worth a look, especially ... read more

While not my favourite of Keaton's excursions, there's an undeniable charm to it. Never mind the reference to Sherlock, though; I think, after having seen this, that Buster Keaton should be more widely credited as the first Bond!

Silent Perfection

I’m not a silent film aficionado, I’m more of a tourist when it comes to this era of filmmaking. Sherlock Jr. is the only silent film I’ve ever awarded a perfect five-star rating and I doubt I will ever come across another silent movie as fun, thrilling, inventive or as mind-blowing as Sherlock Jr.; in my view Buster Keaton’s crowning achievement. Most of Keaton’s silent output is great ... read more

A projectionist and a sheik are rivals for a girl. The sheik steals her father's watch and Sherlock is blamed. Back at his projectionist's job he dreams himself and everyone else in his life into the movie which is playing. He is now Sherlock Holmes looking for some stolen pearls.

"The film within a film concept is probably super innovative, and really quite brilliant. Beyond this novelty, the film is quite funny and a great Buster Keaton romp."

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"SHERLOCK JR. - THE PROJECTIONIST ENTERS THE SCREEN Buster Keaton is cool. He oozes it. The fixed, neutral expression, the astonishing control he has over his own body, the heroic execution of those jaw-dropping stunts. I'd say he was up there with the coolest screen presences of all time. But despite their winning physical dexterity and the fact that they always win through in the end, Keaton's characters are usually portrayed as part-hero, part-sap. From the effete son of a manly riverboat cap"

"" It has jaw-dropping stunts and gags that surprise on multiple viewings. (How did he jump through his friend’s chest?) But it also offers a strange, post-modern-before-it-had-a-name exploration of movies, viewers, and the relationship between the two. Come for the laughs, stay for the philosophical hall-of-mirrors." - Keith Phipps"

"Buster Keaton was MAD. How could he do all those incredible stunts? And there are some tricks that just blew my mind and kept me wondering how they managed to do it. And the flick is also very funny, a naive humour that we can only find in Keaton's and Chaplin's movies."
