  1. It's plotless. It fits no category -- "docudrama tone poem" probably comes closest.

    Dramatic disappointment aside, there is a feel for the unglamorous, demanding lives of the real dancers.
  3. Not a farce, or comedy or drama, but essentially a doodle interrupted by nouveau ballet performances, the entire contraption assembled to please the ego of Neve Campbell.

    Ramshackle one minute, pointlessly deliberate the next.

    This is a dull, lifeless production that will find favor only with those with an insider's perspective or who feel compelled to praise the acclaimed director's every film, no matter how out-of-touch and pretentious it may be.

    No character other than Antonelli is developed enough to register. Worse, the minor characters, most of whom are played by Joffrey dancers, are simply not actors.
  7. Lacks what could kindly be called coherence.
  8. When The Company owns up to what it is -– a performance piece -– it’s glorious. Everything else -– the window-dressing of a fiction film -– just gums up that gloriousness.

    Worst movie I've ever seen actually. NOTHING happens. Nothing. At all.
