Critic Reviews for Carmen and Geoffrey
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.
Given that Carmen and Geoffrey focuses on two of the most innovative figures of African-American modern dance -- Carmen de Lavallade and Geoffrey Holder -- it's a shame that this film is both uncreative and technically maladroit.
