An ode to sexuality and the female form, Crazy Horse is graphic, bold and colorful. I wish there was more feeling envolved into this doc-work, though. I missed knowing who these people are and what Crazy Horse ir really about. At the end, I guess this movie experience is equal to the live show: treats to the eyes, not so much to the brain.
Wiseman casts his eye on the workings of the famous CRAZY HORSE SALOON in Paris. More than just erotica the club prides itself on its choreography, style and performers. Wiseman's style of plain observation works well here and is a rare aside in digital projection for the veteran. Well captured and entertaining peak behind the curtain with several performances captured that truly exude their desired intent.
The first Wiseman where I didn't spend a significant portion of the runtime slack-jawed in awe, notsomuch because the stakes are low than because there's not much of an argument being made here, far as I could tell. But it has a lot going for it visually and atmospherically, and would make a great double bill with Taylor Mead's Ass.
Renowned documentarian Frederick Wiseman visits the Crazy Horse, Paris' famous nude dance club, capturing its inner workings and on-stage majesty. Wiseman weaves a narrative of life in the Crazy Horse, eschewing interviews and talking heads for fly on the wall observation. The result is a highly immersive and at times breathtaking tribute to the stunning craft and sensuality of this temple of feminine beauty.
