Nunca pensei que um dia assitiria um filme com o Buster Keaton como ator e ele não seria o melhor em cena, estou falando daquele macaco, aquele macaco é genial. Só porque chegou hoje o meu box com a obra completa muda do Buster Keaton do Obras Primas do Cinema em DVD.

A hapless tintype photographer (Buster Keaton) tries to woo an MGM secretary (Marceline Day) by becoming a newsreel cameraman, with predictably comedic results. While not quite on a par with his finest work - it bogs down a bit during some irrelevant sequences - it rallies for a mostly superb final act, complete with a monkey ex machina.

Clearly missing the talent of writer/director Buster Keaton since he was downgraded to just a starring role here.

The most stress-inducing genre is not suspense thriller or psychological drama or even horror - it's silent comedies.

Buster Keaton delivering the goods once more, in this bittersweet tale of a poor little fella trying to make it as a cameraman and to win the girl of his dreams. Its storyline is simple yet engaging, filled with perfectly executed gags and sweet moments, at times funny, at times sad. The ending, where Buster leaves the camera from his hands for the first time, elegantly reveals the moving truth of the film.

This came at the end of Keaton’s astounding run of great movies in the 20s. Not coincidentally, it was his first for MGM. After The Cameraman, he increasingly lost creative control. Keaton’s last films before MGM (including The General and Steamboat Bill, Jr.) set an extremely high standard, and The Cameraman was probably the last Keaton movie that could comfortably be included in a retrospective showing of his best work. Having said that, it’s a notch below his best. Which isn't bad at al

I found the comedic bits rather dated, I'm afraid, but a cute love story is on the other hand timeless, and what the film lacks in spectactular stunts is therefor more than made up for by the really sweet romance between Marceline Day's gentle Sally and the befuddled Buster.

Apart from being very funny, and sometimes, wickedly inventive, Keaton’s films always have a strong heart to them, and I’m not talking about the sentiment Charlie Chaplin trafficked in; there’s real courage in not only what Buster puts on-screen as a filmmaker, but in what his characters project—that no matter what life puts in your way, a little courage, and a lot of perseverance, will get you a long way in life, even when it looks like things just aren’t meant to go your way.

This is obviously very good, but I didn't get nearly as much enjoyment out of it as Buster's classics, so it comes off as a disappointment. Some inspired sequences like the scene in Yankee Stadium sit next to some really well-done pathos, as Buster perseveres in the hopes of success. Also, there's a monkey.

Mildly amusing for the most part, but not always clear-headed -- I was wondering if the romantic sub-plot was deviating away from the cameraman aspect too much, but I guess the story re-focused itself. The usual BK visual gags/stunts/occasional clever intertitle appear, but I take against this film because I don't get what's so special about the female love interest -- I would've left that bitch after she had me sitting in the rain after our nice date (and I'm not a picky dude).
