Critic Reviews for The White Crow

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Oleg Ivenko, a Ukrainian dancer in his acting debut, is persuasive in "The White Crow".

The narrative bounces all over the place trying to cover too much ground when concentrating on the core drama would have far better served the desired end.

A classy - and respectfully sexy - night at the movies.

It's an expertly constructed movie that will serve as an excellent introduction to Nureyev for the uninitiated, although some may baulk at the notoriously difficult Nureyev being given such a sensitive approach.

But just as Rudi's determination to pursuing 'art' begins to eclipse his life, so too does The White Crow's interest in appraising the artist end up eclipsing the man.

October 23, 2018 | Full Review…

The cluttered structure, littered with brusque little flashbacks, repeatedly interrupts the momentum and tension of the story of Nureyev's most daring leap.
