Crazy Horse could be condensed to its advantage.
The idea is to be erotic, seductive, but often, through Wiseman's unforgiving lens, the effect is more anatomical, aloof, amusing.
If there's one thing that's both surprising and predictable about "Crazy Horse" it's how thoroughly unsexy the film is.
Wiseman is a still-prolific luminary of what has been dubbed "direct cinema," a documentary style in which the director intrudes as little as possible and conducts no on-camera interviews.
If nothing else, you'll surely relish the extravagant rhetoric used by Ali Mahdavi, the club's artistic director, to describe what is basically a tasteful nudie revue.
The most interesting dynamic exists between director Philippe Decoufle and artistic director Ali Mahdavi.
Crazy Horse manages to achieve a kind of constant double image. When we watch the numbers we see both the fantasy and the labor that goes into simulating it.
... leads us to observe the true beauty and talent of the choreographers and dancers. [Full review in Spanish]
Crazy Horse shows how much work goes into winning the battles of the erotic army, even if the real warfare is going on behind the curtains.
Black box shadow play and dubbed orgasmic moaning-Frederick Wiseman's documentary on the Crazy Horse cabaret in Paris sets its world rules from the start: the presentation of stagecraft fantasy.
Cinema in essence involves the projection of desire, and what Wiseman cleverly does in Crazy Horse is present desire, illustrate its operation and deconstruct it.
Sit back, relax and get an eyeful.
