| Original Score: 3/4
I thought I'd enjoy this, but it wound up giving me the creeps.
A fascinating and surprisingly involving film.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Slowly evolves beyond highfalutin concepts like 'the craft of acting' into universal questions about surface beauty, inner depth and the double-edged sword of following a dream.
A simultaneously dispiriting and inspiring portrait of the auditioning process that will be of great interest to actors and casting directors.
I admired it and felt a little ground down at the same time.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The most powerful moments find the movie surrendering to its female subjects' charisma, fixating on their hand gestures or settling into a static position, the better to watch a woman speak a stranger's words and become someone else.
| Original Score: 3/5
There's no insight here, only voyeurism, and one blisteringly fine German performer reading from [director] Hershey's appalling script.
| Original Score: 2/6
The acting process is joyously celebrated in Casting About, a captivating documentary shot entirely in audition rooms during the search for three thesps for a feature film.
