Samuel Beckett’s Film has been the focus of several articles in the past ten years. Most scholars who have written on Film, such as James Knowlson and Jonathan Kalb, track the influence of silent films, surrealist art and the avant-garde in Beckett’s failed cinematic excursion. Some theorists, such as Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, examine the associations that can be drawn from Buster Keaton’s appearance in the film. Still other critics, like Jonathan Bignell, have explored the implication of the film’s generic title. While these investigations are diverse, what they share is their dependence on biographical data to support their readings of Beckett’s short film.
