    Because of the rote and typical way of organizing a dance movie around a contest, the pace and interest lag even though the images and characters are fascinating. Yet the film is worth watching because of the strong cinematography and the glimpses of strange beauty in the dance moves.

    The film is more an on-the-fly glimpse of the scene than a deep-dive exploration, but that doesn't make it any less electric.

    The movie’s great strength is the way it captures these dancers, sometimes in slow motion, as they contort their bodies in ways that don’t seem possible. When it comes to the narrative, though, the movie struggles a bit.

    Putting aside the generic human interest, the film turns out to be shockingly deficient in its on-screen depiction of flexing.
