  1. One of the thrills of the movie is watching the improvisatory trial-and-error process as the dancers explore psychological themes, contorting their graceful, amazingly limber bodies into visual representations of relationships and emotional states.
  2. While it's not a blistering look behind the scenes, Last Dance gives a fuller picture of the creative process than most others of its ilk.
  3. 75
    Bank's discursive but oddly riveting documentary, Last Dance, offers a glimpse of what was probably the most important, and conceivably the most bitterly contested, collaboration in Pilobolean history.
  4. The real highlight is watching the dancers as they progress from their first, tentative improvisations to the final, complex performance.
  5. An illuminating glimpse into what goes on in the dance studio.
  6. 63
    Rehearsals are frequently more fascinating than the results. Last Dance, whatever its flaws, fulfills one facet of its mission in making me want to find out whether, in this case, that's true.
  7. 50
    Displays, in all its discomfort and occasional fruitfulness, the trouble inherent in aesthetics by committee.
