Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Graced with a particular genius for absorbing the past to suggest an exciting cinematic future.
Fresh: Aims right for the heart and aces its target.
Rotten: So exasperating in its contradictions, so frustrating in its fakery, so deeply irritating in its pretensions, it's frankly hard to know where to begin to dissect it.
Fresh: Dancer is like no other movie around. Shot in bleached-out video colors in rough, hand-held style, the film is at once aggressively modern and deliberately, melodramatically, old-fashioned.
I love this movie but its so sad
Dancer in the Dark
A most unusual movie, perfectly cast, that tugs at your heart and does not let go. Bjork and Catherine Deneuve are excellent!
Be prepared to cry... A lot. So good though!
