Tony Zhou is back with another insightful video in his series Every Frame a Painting (previously), analyzing the artistry of the gags in the movies of Buster Keaton.
Before Edgar Wright and Wes Anderson, before Chuck Jones and Jackie Chan, there was Buster Keaton, one of the founding fathers of visual comedy. And nearly 100 years after he first appeared onscreen, we’re still learning from him. Today, I’d like to talk about the artistry (and the thinking) behind his gags.
