Movie Recco – The General

It’s been almost a decade since I first heard of Buster Keaton. When everyone was talking about Charlie Chaplin, I was looking for other comedians who were around at the time, and there he was: Buster Keaton. However, The General is the first movie I’ve seen by Mr. Keaton since discovering him, and I’ve tried watching some of his short films but was not patient enough to watch that movie back then. When I first subscribed to Mubi, I came across this movie and was unprepared to witness one of the best action movies I’d ever seen.
