Rate This Movie:

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. This was Samuel Beckett's only venture into the medium of cinema.

Many persons argue that computers and the Net have already had a great influence on our lives and that they are gently turning us into less and less active people. But when it comes to being practical and costly precious time, the perspective changes seriously. Why waste a lot of time and patience doing something for those who have a far better alternative? Proceed by spend that time doing some thing you like, such as watching films that will be delivered to you so conveniently through due to on-line movie rentals?
