While there's plenty of footage of Polunin executing multiple pirouettes and twisting acrobatically through the air, real ballet fans will lament the lack of evidence of emotion and artistry in his dancing.
I gasped, more than once.
Llike Amy, Asif Kapadia's profile of singer Amy Winehouse, the movie shows a young person being dragged into adulthood by his own outsize talent.
One's appreciation of this regulation cable biodoc hinges on one's interest in the subject matter, not the medium.
Mr. Polunin's suffering may be on display, but too little of his artistry.
If rags-to-riches-to-rags tales like this one appeal to you, go watch Polunin, not this clip-job of a movie, and draw your own conclusions.
It's a compelling story, up to a point, but Polunin 's personal life always remains off-screen. Though that may be by design, it leaves this portrait feeling frustratingly unfinished.
A documentary that benefits from the contemporary supersaturation of images. The film makes clear that little has remained unrecorded in the life of Polunin. [Full review in Spanish]
A kind of biography that focuses more on the trajectory and personality of Polunin than on the explanation of his technique or his opinions. [Full review in Spanish]
An amazing documentary that mixes different styles (news, home videos and interesting self-indulgent stumps). [Full review in Spanish]
Filmmaker Cantor has enough access to the titular hoofer's parents, grandmother and Royal Academy colleagues to unravel his mystery of his 'retirement' and to capture the precise moment when he falls back in love with dancing.
Dancer is able to make you forget everything you think you know about the subject, which is surely the hallmark of a great documentary.
