  1. Adam GR's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    ¡Flamenco! What a remarkably theatrical, enigmatically lyrical mode of expression. Beautifully percussive. An Altman-esque beginning flows into a dress rehearsal that ends in blood. Dance film feels.

  2. zubee's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    Music a 4.5 the dancing a 5. But no translation? I have no clue what's going on..2 so I must go with a 3 for the Saura (Mouse) picture. Pity.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    The behind the scenes moments were well done. The highlight for me was the knife fight. Beautiful.

  5. David Perez's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    There ain't no dance crap bs going on in Lorca's Blood Wedding, man. Looks like a bunch of fairies got a hold of his play and re-wrote it for a 4th of July douche party on Fire Island.

  6. Loz Loory's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    Was not a fan of Saura's 1998 "Tango," as the choreography and cinematography were too glitzy. This production was pitch perfect though. Loved the cinematography, the choreography, and the costuming. Owes much to Bob Fosse's 1979 boundary-breaking dance masterpiece "All That Jazz," with editing and storytelling moving between fiction and reality. Wonderful interweaving of camera angles--looks easy, but so hard to do!

  11. Eric Rucker's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    This would make a very cool double feature with Guy Maddin’s vampire ballet silent film, Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary. Very intense and beautiful and tragic. So much from so little. Stories of human ridiculousness told in ways as elemental as ancient Greek theater. Inventive films driven by the dance. Camera movements forced to mean. The dancing says so many things. No empty calories, all sweat and blood.

    And Antonio Gades still owns my heart.

  13. Larry's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    Very elegant and beautiful choices.

  14. Spiritchaser's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    Does for dancing what Teshigahara's Antonio Gaudi did for architecture.

  15. Sweeney's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    Hmm - did anyone else who saw this wonder if the incredible knife battle scene might have had some influence on the fight sequence effects in "The Matrix"?

  16. Marvin's rating of the film Blood Wedding

    It's a masterpiece. No words and yet it expresses everything Lorca wrote into the play Bodas de sangre. Through dance and body motions, Saura pulls off one of the cinema's great works. Beautiful stuff!
