Great movie about the artistic drive
29 June 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as part of the Slamdance mini-fest in Salt Lake City tonight. It included only two features, and I was planning on watching the first one, then leaving while this one played - after all, it's a documentary about a ballerina, and I have never even danced. I'm very glad I stayed. The beginning of it is a bit slow, and maybe a 7/10 - it's sort of a TV-style documentary. It's the type of thing you would watch a few minutes of if you were channel surfing, but you'd get bored quick. But then it gets into the discussion of the way the dancer's family relationships effected her work, and it gets into how her obsession with her art eventually ruined her relationship with her husband. There was some pointless stuff tossed into here, and a general lack of direction as they strayed off about ghosts and the history of the town, but overall a great movie, 10/10.
