Critic Reviews for Flamenco
This 1995 catalog of performances by various artists may represent the historical development of a rich and enthralling art form, but it's presented in such a clinical way it might as well be a list on a chalkboard.
An irresistible treat for connoisseurs and the uninitiated alike, pic will be a bracing surprise for anyone who has forgotten how exciting music, dance and voice can be.
Saura's film is both an exciting document of a thriving Spanish art form and a boring documentary.
The dead spots in the film outnumber the highlights, and a sameness sets in too soon and for too long.
The swirling together of music, dance, color and light, along with the feeling that these serious revels are driven by ancient, impenetrable mysteries, cannot help but stir the blood.
Audience Reviews for Flamenco
Horrible bore. Just one dance after another without dialogue, and the passionate songs come without subtitles so we don't understand what the passionate singer is singing about. Avoid this turkey.
Maybe if I actually could dance the Flamenco, I would be able to appreciate it more. Dull to a non dancer.
