My sometimes-sluggish silent cinema class is focusing on silent comedies this week, and boy are they side-splittingly good.  I’m sitting here and laughing just reading the academic essays written about them (which have phrases like “truncated syllogism” and words like “semidiegetic”).  The four films that we saw today (starring Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Charley Chase) were so good that even small reminders in the secondary sources of the gags in films like His Wooden Wedding (1925) are making me laugh at my desk.  Bravo! 

It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen a film that made me want to make/produce/write movies myself.  I can’t even recall the last time that happened.  I definitely felt that way after Buster Keaton’s Sherlock, Jr (1924).

And then I came home and saw The Transporter 2 (2000).  I enjoyed it, but I think I’m going to put a couple of Harrold Lloyd and Buster Keaton films on my Netflix queue.
