Movie Reviews

Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Sid Smith May not be the greatest dance documentary ever made, but it could well be the most accessible and touching.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 10/10 by R. M. Campbell It captures the heart and spirit of one of the 20th century's most fabled ballet companies, with a history that stretches continents and decades.
Baltimore Sun - 10/10 by Michael Sragow It gives you such an intense hit of creativity that afterward you may find yourself trying to jete out of the theater and into the street.
L.A. Weekly - 9/10 by Ella Taylor The meat of the film is their wittily edited interviews with company members, now in their 80s and 90s and scattered around the world, many of them still active as teachers and consultants.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Kenneth Turan A captivating film that truly elevates the spirit, Ballets Russes is the most emotionally satisfying documentary since "Mad Hot Ballroom."
New York Daily News - 9/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman Goldfine discover so many fascinating themes within their seemingly narrow subject that anyone with the slightest interest in history or human nature will find it absorbing.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 8/10 by Paula Citron Ballets Russes should find a wider audience beyond dance aficionados. Like all good documentaries, the human element is the glory of Ballets Russes.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Steven Winn If this documentary never quite makes the case for the deeper artistic or cultural imprint of the Ballets Russes, it does convey its enduring presence in these dancers' lives.
TV Guide Magazine - 8/10 by Maitland McDonagh You don't have to know an arabesque from an alligator handbag to enjoy Daniel Geller and Dayna Goldfine's loving documentary about the various incarnations of the Ballet Russe.
New York Post - 8/10 by V.A. Musetto The documentary traces the fiery history of Ballets Russes -- which for a time consisted of two warring companies.
Salon.com - 8/10 by Andrew O'Hehir It's a profoundly optimistic and delightful movie, for balletomanes and neophytes alike. It made me happy for days afterward.
The New York Times - 8/10 by Dana Stevens Ballets Russes does tell a marvelous story of midcentury show business, encompassing both the most exalted expressions of pure art and the sometimes grubby commerce that sustained it.
