Always informative yet never remotely original. The story gets told, we learn something, class dismissed.

"Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance" is an exhilarating piece of dance history...

Dance films like Wim Wenders's innovative, kinetic "Pina" have now set a high barre, and by comparison the traditional talking-head style of this documentary seems primed for showings on public television.

A deeply archived and circumspect history of the Joffrey dance company, Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance does a perfect white swan but has trouble developing much of a personality.

Top Critic

There's a lot of valuable information here, but for all the archival footage on view, dance is rarely allowed to make its effect.

Top Critic

For all the juicy backstage stories and remarkable archival footage of early performances, the film still feels blandly affirmative.

The Grid

A bountiful feast for dance lovers, as well as a thrilling story of artistic endeavor for everyone to savor.

Film Journal International

While the doc offers us a story that needs to be told, it does so in very non-Joffrey ways.

Slant Magazine

Director Hercules doesn't show lots of muscle, preferring information to emotion, a curious choice in a movie about passionate people in an expressive art form, forever laboring for love.
