Better than the movie it was documenting
4 December 2005 | by (Moscow USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary was made by Daryl Hannah about her research for her role as "Angel" in "Dancing at the Blue Iguana". We find out, for example, that the "marijuana bust" scene was inspired by a true story told by one of the dancers that Daryl met during the course of her research. The cinema verite style works here, it is a documentary of sorts, although almost everyone in southern California has acting pretensions, including the club manager, who fancies himself some kind of strange hybrid cross between Joe Pesci and Bela Lugosi. Although even the manager is portrayed as having a human side in the documentary, for instance when he consoles Nikki after her father's death. There are some surprises for the actresses, for example, they discover that some of the pole moves are actually hard, even for Daryl who had training in gymnastics. The gallows humor and camaraderie of the dancers comes across better in the documentary than the movie proper, which I think arises from the relatively weak story line in the movie. In all fairness, the movie was an improv attempt by Michael Radner, but I came away from it feeling that the story line kind of meanders and goes nowhere, which leaves a couple of strong performances stranded. In fact, much of the story line in the eventual movie should be credited to Hannah's research. Its a compliment to say the documentary and movie remind one of the strip club in Casavetes "Killing of a Chinese Bookie", but ultimately the movie doesn't really have much of a conclusion, so the documentary actually works better as a "Day in the Life" montage.
