Audience Reviews for Daydreams
Day Dreams is broken up into different segments and is the least story driven of Buster's shorts I've seen so far. It runs at 23 minutes in length even though it was originally shot as a three-reel film. The reason being that several minutes of footage has been lost to time and only stills remain (Kino does a great job of inserting the correct stills with a note or two describing what we are missing out on) thus cutting the run time to what we currently have. It's amazing that the film exists at all and thus is a great treasure and one that I'm proud to own as the only copy was eventually discovered in Czechoslovakia. The intertitles are all redone to suit the film as the originals were also lost.
Not one of Buster's better shorts. It's too episodic, includes a creepy suicide element and has no emotional pull at all. His acrobatic climb around a moving steamboat wheel is the best reason to see this one.
One of Buster Keaton's least plot-driven shorts, but also one of his funniest. Even the oddly morbid ending made me laugh out loud. Not sure why this one remains so unknown, it's very funny.
