Critic Reviews for Dancemaker
Though the dances themselves are sometimes histrionically shot or overedited, Diamond ultimately succeeds in putting Taylor's best foot forward in this wholly memorable film.
A pleasingly full portrait of an important American artist, struggling to work in an ever-endangered field.
Only a director entranced with dance could have made a documentary as fresh and fine as this one about choreographer Paul Taylor.
. . . not only one of the finest documentaries ever made on dance, it's one of the most superlative documentaries of the nineties.
full of wonderful dancing
Audience Reviews for Dancemaker
this documentary won a well-deserved nomination for an academy award in 1998. it is about american choreographer paul taylor as he creates a new work to astor piazzolla's tangos. the film also provides profiles on many of his dancers, including patrick corbin and lisa viola.
I am not a big fan of modern dance, but this documentary is interesting nonetheless. Paul Taylor's arrogance can be an irritant. There are some very creative dance scenes and the dancers interviews are very interesting.
