Critic Reviews for Never Stand Still
For lovers of dance, "Never Stand Still" should prove a fleet, enjoyable excursion.
This film has the everyday vibe of a bunch of friends putting together a summer camp video. Gosh, the substance of Jacob's Pillow should be a little less sleepy.
Too often, Honsa will simply let his talking heads ramble on without focus or foundation...
It's all pretty loose and formless, but there's enough discipline on display to thrill lovers of movement, whether amateur or advanced.
The historical footage of Jacob's Pillow is fascinating, and if you've ever slogged through an hours-long tech rehearsal, look no further for your comrades-in-arms.
Modern dance appreciated as a sacred endeavor enabling one to fly above the fray, if not literally, vicariously, at the very least.
