New York City — Showtimes & Events

Saturday December 10th: Editor’s Pick

3:00 at Anthology Film Archives [Program & Tix]

THE GENERAL
Keaton | 1927 | US | 105m
“Essential Cinema”
3:00 at Anthology

The General belongs to at least three movie genres: comedy, historical, and chase. Most of it is constructed around a pursuit as relentless as any Bourne blowout, involving a Confederate locomotive, called the General, hijacked by Union spies… The train is an incessant inspiration to Keaton’s inventive genius. Many passages are so suspenseful and minutely worked out that the gag, when it comes, is like the release of the General’s steam. It gives you a chance to breathe again.”

Gary Giddins, Slate [Read More]
