Samuel Beckett – Film (1965)

Dir: Alan Schneider, with Buster Keaton – Also Known as Samuel Beckett’s Film. A twenty-minute, almost totally silent film (no dialogue or music, one ‘shhh!’) in which Buster Keaton attempts to evade observation by an all-seeing eye. But, as the film is based around Bishop Berkeley’s principle ‘esse est percipi’ (to be is to be perceived), Keaton’s very existence conspires against his efforts.
