The Saturday Saying

“Perhaps a better subtitle might be “The Rise and Fall and Rise and Fall and Rise and Fall and Fall Even Further….” If the paparazzi had been as aggressive and the media as able to transmit information in the 1920s as they are today, Keaton could have rivaled Charlie Sheen or Lindsay Lohan in the watch-me-screw-up-my-life-before-your-very-eyes department. That alone is no fun to see.”

Travis Michael Holder – from his review of “Stoneface” (Backstage)

“The tragicomedy Stoneface may be subtitled The Rise and Fall and Rise of Buster Keaton, but the script’s dirty-laundry subject matter is so depressing that a more apt subtitle would be The Fall and Fall and Fall (and some Pratfalls and a quick Rise) of Buster Keaton.”

Tony Frankel – from his review of “Stoneface” (Stage and Cinema)
