  • One doesn't have to be a dance aficionado to be drawn to this film, but if you are, Lavallade's observations about the difficult work of dance -- and choreography -- are as poetic as they are illuminating.

  • Laugh if you want to, but this movie is a joyful celebration of the possibilities of love, the possibilities of blackness, the possibilities of America, and the possibilities of the human spirit. It's a tremendous tonic for dark times.

  • Proves too slight to encompass the innovative artistry of its celebrated subjects...could still wow cognoscenti and philistines alike.

  • Both subjects are interviewed at length, and the filmmakers have unearthed some rare, arresting black-and-white dance footage from the '50s and '60s.

  • Leaves you wondering why its subjects are not widely recognized as national treasures.
