The Company

Critics Consensus

Its deliberately unfocused narrative may frustrate some viewers, but The Company finds Altman gracefully applying his distinctive eye to the world of dance.

Audience Reviews for The Company

  • May 05, 2011
    "The Company" is Robert Altman's most naturalistic and expressive film. The thing you have to understand about the picture is that Altman is not concerned with crafting a structured narrative. He is concerned with observing. "The Company" is a fly on the wall peek into the world of a ballet company (a fictional one of course). The behind the scenes-esque approach is intercut with beautiful dance sequences. Neve Campbell, Malcolm McDowell and James Franco bring a human, organic touch to the film. "The Company" is not for everyone. Your tolerance of the film will stem from your relationship to dance and your ability to be a voyeur in this world and not an active participant. In his penultimate feature film, Robert Altman was still finding new and interesting ways to tell a cinematic story.

    This was a really bad movie, I'm sort of ashamed that Robert Altman was connected to this project. Then why did I give it three stars? Mainly because the ballet sequences were stunning. When everybody just shut their mouths and started spinning, it was just magic.

    Uninteresting, I really expected more from Altman, Just a showcase of dance pieces & I never liked dance movies
