  • Sympathetic, serviceable but respectfully unintrusive ...

    March 9, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The documentary highlights [Polunin's] brilliance as a performer but its real richness lies in its frank and painful account of just what it took for him to reach the top and of his doubt about what to do once he got there.

    March 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Cantor's documentary travels back to Polunin's roots in the Ukraine in search of a motive for this extraordinary move and follows him as he struggles to come to terms with his own prodigious talent.

    March 5, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.
