  1. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Isadora Duncan, the Biggest Dancer in the World

  2. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Isadora Duncan, the Biggest Dancer in the World

    I love Vivian Pickles as Isadora. She was probably closer in build than Vanessa Redgrave. She is also less lyrical but she is earthier. You feel the agony.

  3. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Isadora Duncan, the Biggest Dancer in the World

    Life through a wide telescope. Wonderfully frenetic and kaleidoscopic survey of Duncan's life and career. The bumptious pace captures just the right balance between slapstick revisionism and tender pathos. Whilst the declamatory dialogue can grate elsewhere in Russell's work, the foghorn pronouncements of Duncan are carried along by the sheer bounce of the piece.
