Critic Reviews for The Cameraman
Studio interference damaged the film but could not destroy it.
The Cameraman gave Buster one of his best roles and he filled it with one of his most touching and fleshed-out performances, using mostly his intense eyes.
One of Keaton's most impressively self-reflective films and an ode to the unexpected and elusive lightening-in-a-bottle nature of filmmaking.
...the old Keaton magic could not be entirely dampened by the studio's dictums, and The Cameraman includes a number of very funny bits.
Audience Reviews for The Cameraman
My first Buster movie! And I really liked it! He must've had a lot of bruises in a period where stunt men weren't available! What I liked about it was the expressiveness and the tight choreography, every movement is timed without looking strained or enforced. It was painful and funny at the same time, the scene in the changing room is hilarious. Buster is such a cute and lovable actor. I'm definitely interested in seeing more of his work.
my new favorite keaton film and the last one he made relatively free from interference at mgm. chaplin warned him not to sign :(
This is such a sweet movie, I love it. It's funny, exciting, and has a good story.
