Dzi Croquettes (2009)
Critic Reviews for Dzi Croquettes
If the film doesn't measure up as a piece of historical scholarship, it does manage to be a rather touching exploration of the troupe's life cycle: achieving notoriety, then being torn apart by fame, then being destroyed by forces beyond its control.
Presents a wide-ranging picture of a unique cultural phenomenon, even if subjects like Liza Minnelli too often fall into semiarticulate expressions of hagiographical awe.
It's the mind-blowing performance footage (and there's lots of it) that makes this a must-see film.
"Dzi Croquettes" is both a tribute and a terrific entertainment.
Although the film recounts an intriguing slice of social history, it is too haphazard and repetitive to be truly memorable.
Audience Reviews for Dzi Croquettes
I have issues with the film's editing, since the information is presented in a rather clumsy, haphazard manner (not to mention the heavy-handed way the director puts herself in it), but still this is such an engaging and enlightening doc about those groundbreaking artists.
