    Our Hospitality

    ★★★★

    Our Hospitality is Buster Keaton's take on Romeo and Juliet. It's a rather loose retelling of famous play, it mainly copies main concept, love between members of feuding families, and applies on Keaton comedies.

    For a silent comedy, film opens on a surprisingly dark and serious scene of showdown that kills one member of McKay family and one of Canfield family. Keaton and his co-director John G. Blystone have made this into rather suspenseful scene of buildup to the shootout,…

    Even before I saw this movie I knew that this movie could easily fail in the way its representation of Joro, creatorr of Zero. In the movie he is an artist who is obsessed with creating the best plane,…
