DANCER

DANCER 1

DANCER REVIEWED

“Dancer” makes me wonder if I’m missing the appeal of Sergei Polunin. Polunin has been dubbed the Bad Boy of Ballet, but this documentary feels like a bigger puff piece than “Never Say Never”. Whether he’s helping with a Hozier music video or trying to make ballet look cool, this documentary doesn’t provide many answers. What it does do is skirt the line between artistic portrait and unintentional comedy. It really didn’t help watching “Popstar” right before this.

The majority of the film focuses on Polunin’s decision to walk away from it all at 21. The push to find identity seems a bit trite. The guy was a high profile performer in Ukraine, but it’s not like he was a movie star or something. These are the questions that I’ll forget about by next week.
