Bay Area filmmaker Warren Sonbert will present his newest film, The Cup and the Lip (1986) and has specially chosen a number of Buster Keaton’s short films to complete the program. The Cup and the Lip is “A sliced concoction of three years’ gathered ingredients combusted for a snappy misanthropic goulash. In the political maelstrom as opposed to portraiture arena and form whiplashes content in terse propulsion.” — W.S. “There are rare souls who are able to accomplish their destiny in the rhythmic and architectonic gearing of the film… Keaton arrives at comedy through direct harmony with objects, situations and the other means of his work.” — Luis Buñuel on Buster Keaton.
