Wim Wenders Tyskland, 2011

Loz Loory's rating of the film Pina

4.5 Another great documentary about a crucial figure in modern dance. On par with "Dancemaker" about Paul Taylor. Bausch's "The Rite of Spring" is like Alvin Ailey's "Revelations": so brilliant that each time you watch it, you are bowled over anew by its shear elemental force and power. The dance pieces outside in Wuppertal are slightly jarring; Pina's work was meant for the stage, with all elements controlled.
