Ahead of this summer’s production of The Magic Flute (July 17–20), Peter Bogdanovich’s 2018 documentary pays tribute to the legendary Buster Keaton, whose astonishing physical comedy and trademark deadpan expression inform the character of Papageno in Barrie Kosky’s boundlessly inventive staging of Mozart’s beloved opera, inspired by the era of silent film.

“Illuminating and astute.”
– New York Times
