  1. 91
    An unforgettable movie with a message that is likely to add wrinkles to your conception of what it means to be a good steward of the Earth.
  2. In a very real way, The Great Dance constitutes an act of preservation and a requiem.
  3. 75
    The labor of love of South African brothers Craig and Damon Foster, who directed and photographed this intriguing documentary.
  4. Never shies away from either the beauty or the cruelty of the hunt.
  5. 70
    A grassroots refutation of Discovery Channel/National Geographic dispassion, The Great Dance: A Hunter's Story is hot and sweaty with fetching curves.
  6. 60
    For the first time anywhere, filmmaking brothers Craig and Damon Foster capture this rare event as it happens, and it's something to see.
  7. Moreover, what the film lacks in temporal credibility, it amply makes up for in sheer rawness -- the rawness being literal.
