The Boat is superbly, ceaselessly comic, in its hero's imperturbably practical and unsurprised reaction to catastrophe.
"The Boat" is another Buster Keaton short that is 23 minutes in length but is still filled with Buster's athleticism, sight gags and amazing camera techniques that he applies in a multitude of ways adding to the sense of realism in the film. Literally felt sick when viewing the boat spinning scene in which the camera moves and so does Buster to keep from being thrown about, which still happens in the end. This isn't to say that it's a bad thing, I was more impressed that a film over 90 years old had such technique in not only it's camera work but editing and directing. This is almost like a sequel to the earlier Buster short "One Week" as Buster brings back Sybil Seely to play the staring role of his wife and now they have two sons in tow as well. The film picks up as Buster has just finished building the boat in his garage but of course it's too big to get out and even with removing several stones, getting it out ends in disaster. The rest of the film, once the boat is finally set afloat, is about trying to stay up and eventually leads to the sinking and it's in the boat and on it's journey that we are given a chance to see all types of techniques used in order to portray the direction and angling of the boat. A really well done and special Keaton short that picks up perfectly after the other masterpiece "One Week".
