Artsy and insightful!
11 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The format of "She Dances Alone" is the making of a movie within a movie, allowing the viewer to feel as though they are participating in Cort's dealing with the aggrivating, hysterical, and almost historical, Kyra Nijinsky. Symbolizng lost dreams of dance and the career of her father, Bud Cort gives her a chance to re-create the latter and escape reality by basking in her dreams. Nijinsky is comical, but at times, one can't help but look on her with sympathy, as sometimes she never seems to want to give up the past.

The director, played by the beautifully talented Bud Cort, was, for me, the hi-light of "She Dances Alone." His reactions to Kyra's outlandish comments and dancing is so underwhelming, understated, and marvelously deadpan. The way he handles Kyra and the young ballerina is gentle and empathetic.

Also listen to the song played at the very end- it is Bud Cort! He has a very soft, melodic voice!

Furthermore, this movie is sadly underrated, but it went far beyond my expectations.
