Five Dances Reviews

Shawn Hazelett
Under the Radar

At times the plot seems to exist merely to string together all these dance scenes ... Unfortunately, Five Dances feels more interested in the art than the artist.

There's an interesting vibe there, but it's not enough to save what seems like a failed experiment.

Unfortunately, schmaltzy music and drab melodrama drag down the otherwise graceful moves of Five Dances.

Though the film's untested cast struggles with the drama, and the sketched-out story is often banal (there are several amateurish calls-to-mom scenes), the presentation of a specific city subculture is etched from the heart.

Anyone not associated with the world of modern dance and/or anyone not fixated on the bodies of agile young men will find little of interest in this slow, claustrophobic film

A lovingly shot valentine to work and body and art, and a generous, ultimately happy little story of a lost boy finding a community and a kindred soul.

It's the moments when the director stops worrying about clarifying plot and character motivation and lets the performances bring those into being that makes this an authentic project.

Just when the plotting had me sighing with impatience, Brown would get back into showing us rehearsal and things would liven up again. It's in the recording of dance that this movie comes alive.

Rather than adapting the pieces to conform to his paper-thin narrative, Brown explores the tensions and contortions of dancers expressing fresh emotion through a pre-existing art form.

Five Dances should well impress dance aficionados even if its skimpy narrative proves less than inspired.
