The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky (2002)
Critic Reviews for The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky
No excerpt available.
Certainly no biopic, Nijinsky is short on facts, but long on expression.
Just the labour involved in creating the layered richness of the imagery in this chiaroscuro of madness and light is astonishing.
Those who are only mildly curious, I fear, will be put to sleep or bewildered by the artsy and often pointless visuals.
Has its share of arresting images.
Audience Reviews for The Diaries of Vaslav Nijinsky
Cox embraces a wonderful life by making it about boring visuals and confusing shots. Not the way that Nijinsky deserves to be remembered.
Though offering no footage of Nijinsky dancing (or otherwise being himself), this film evokes the sense of his living, breathing, and emoting - via other dancers, wordless naturescapes, and the reading aloud of his diaries by Derek Jacobi.. Hmm.
