Over long and largely uninteresting
2 September 2002 | by (Perth, Asutralia) – See all my reviews

Call me uneducated and think of me as a mindless film goer with no sense of art if you will but frankly I found The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky to be an overlong and very boring exploration into the mind of Nijinsky.

OK I'll admit I had no idea who he was and I suppose if you are interested in his life then you would probably get a little more out of this film.

There are some brief moments that constitute an interesting exploration into the mind of a lunatic but for the most part you really don't want to be listening to the ravings of lunatic. An if you did you really don't need the crazy visuals that this film offers. It's really only the occasional inclusion of nudity that prevents one from falling asleep.

I give it three out of ten.
