Buster Keaton

Just had a couple of days off with 'man flu' and that would normally mean utter boredom and trying in vain to find something to pass the time other than wade through Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis which is a tedious piece of literature.
So praise be to Sky Cinema which today ran a series of Buster Keaton films. Utterly magical. Absolute timeless classics, the lot of 'em.

UPDATE 8/10/06 - Yesterday there was more Keaton on Sky Cinema, including The Playhouse where, in a stunning dream sequence, Keaton plays 26 different characters. Incredible.
