Ultimately, it's the social, sexual, political and artistic power of the same-sex dance phenomenon that gives the topic its unique heft and vitality.
A case study in the format's flaws...
Freedman kept filming her subjects for so long that she saw their relationships break up and new relationships get started, and she observes all of this without ever being able to make it mean anything.
The cameras caress landscapes, skylines, domesticity, and sequined dancers with equal fervor, but one longs for more of what a competition official calls "a vertical expression of a horizontal desire."
Hot to Trot finds likable subjects but has trouble getting us invested in their stories.
In many ways, these same-sex couples are more creative than their mixed-gender counterparts -- because they need to be. For them, dance is both a personal and political expression, one of great passion.
Hot To Trot is an essential step in the good direction, bringing awareness to the universality of art and the inborn right to self-expression.
It may seem odd, but ballroom is one of the most homophobic of the arts, as mainstream competitions won't even consider a same-sex partnerships. This doc exposes that for the bigotry it is.
Hot to Trot, the documentary by Gail Freedman, in her directing debut, is a warm-hearted, soft-focus film about the same-sex competitive ballroom dancing world.
Hot to Trot shines a spotlight on the little-known world of same-sex ballroom dance and gives the dancers the platform they deserve.
That lame title-along with the use of ho-hum music [...]-gives you the basic tip-off about this earnest but muddled gay take on competitive dancing.
A lovely, graceful documentary.
