Movie Info

CUNNINGHAM traces Merce's artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944-1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the world's most visionary choreographers. The 3D technology weaves together Merce's philosophies and stories, creating a visceral journey into his innovative work. A breathtaking explosion of dance, music, and never-before-seen archival material, CUNNINGHAM is a timely tribute to one of the world's greatest modern dance artists.

  • Even decades since creation, Cunningham's choreography still stuns... Stripped away from convention and without explanation, it flies, but stuck inside tired modes of storytelling, it only stumbles.

  • [A] delightful - if occasionally baffling - portrait of one of the most revolutionary creative artists of the 20th century.

  • Worthwhile, even if the dance sequences are lost in the editing.

  • The film is, I think, just as Cunningham would have wanted it: cerebral, highbrow and mildly frustrating, with nothing so conventional as talking heads or context.

  • I maintain as much of an appreciation for modern dance as I do for watching golf on TV. But this is a movie, and as such, anything can be, and in this case is, rendered cinematic.

    January 29, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Though the film provides a clear chronology of these formative years, it does so in an inventive, unorthodox manner inspired by Cunningham's own untethered creativity.
