This thoughtfully crafted, seamlessly edited film reveals the grit behind the glitter, and it makes the Trocks' humor as touching as it is pointed.
It's in the attention to these dancers that Rebels on Pointe does some of its most moving work, exploring how people hold a space for one another, and how ballet-if we allow it, or make it-can hold a space for us.
A delightful, embracing cultural experience, one that the film's director, Bobbi Jo Hart, warmly captures in all its offbeat glory ...
Friendly but matter-of-fact doc will play best with the troupe's existing fans.
Serious balletomanes will find much to appreciate here; people who delight in seeing the form lampooned will find more.
The cinematography isn't the greatest, and the structure is hit or miss, but so what? In a movie this good natured, the heart is everything.
As a tribute to the current roster of dancers and an exploration of their extraordinary daily routines, Rebels on Pointe is very much, ahem, on point.
If viewed out of the context of recent events, Rebels on Pointe is an enjoyable and inspirational look inside the world of a unique group of artists that will make you eager to take in one of their performances in real life as soon as possible.
The performances of the Trocks are worth the price of admission to "Rebels en Pointe."
These guys may bring a lot of humor into their act, but they can really dance, ABT principal dancer James Whiteside stating that 'he doesn't know how they do it.' They're to ballet what the Harlem Globetrotters are to basketball.
... the personal stories of individual dancers-all cute, compelling-traps the film between trendy identity politics and giving queer cultural innovation the honor it deserves.
... more than anything, Rebels on Pointe sets out to prove the company, despite its gags, is no joke-that behind the gallons of makeup, the metres of tulle, and the size-12 slippers, the men here are top-flight dancers.
