THE NAVIGATOR is a text-book example on how to execute slapstick and sight gags. I would say that this film, even more so than THE GENERAL, is a perfect introduction to the films of Buster Keaton.

Keaton's master coup is in seizing Murnau's haunted ship as a gargantuan comic prop for a pair of stranded nitwits, who don't know what to do with it

One of Buster Keaton's best, which is to say comedy classic.
| Original Score: 5/5

One of the great slapstick comedies from silent comic Buster Keaton.

Part of Keaton's charm is that he doesn't have to be zany in every single frame, which is charmingly illustrated here.

Keaton is the great metaphysical existentialist: a modernist in the finest sense of the word.

Isn't as sophisticated and satisfying as [Keaton's] best (e.g., The General), but still brilliant slapstick comedy, with a rousing third act and a slam-bang climax.

The Navigator looks and feels like it could be one of today's summer mega-blockbusters.
