Critic Reviews for The Business of Fancydancing
Where it goes wrong is in the combination of poetic sensibilities and run-of-the-mill narrative cinema.
It bristles with a passion and intelligence too intense to allow the film's style to seem pretentious.
Alexie's relatively novel take on the quintessentially American story of being stranded between cultures is compelling.
Pretentious when it should be penetrating, spasmodic when it means to be lyrical.
An often affecting, low-budget melodrama that is occasionally sabotaged by its economy of means.
Audience Reviews for The Business of Fancydancing
While The Business of Fancydancing is a thoughtful and complex work of sound and vision, it doesn't seem quite right to call it a film.
Touching and thought provoking. Evan Adam shines in this film. To me this film is about the saying You can't go home again well sometimes you can but it is never the way you left it in the first place.
6.5/10. A simple film with charm and style and shows that a low budget film doesn't have to be bad. Exceptionally well developed characters, good photography and fine writing. The acting is respectable. A good film.
