Don't miss PINA, by Wim Wenders

user
  If you love beautiful things and you want to be moved, you must see PINA, the documentary by Wim Wenders.

Where else have you seen dancers ooze into actual dirt, fling themselves into water and rock, burst through woods in spring, or dance a lonely arabesque on a concrete island surrounded...

This film is a very inside view of the workings of this famed cabaret where all these beautiful dancers are more than just sexy...

These two films got big audience responses last week at the AFI Film Festival in Los Angeles.   “Pina,” a 3-D documentary about the legendary German choreographer Pina Bausch, starts with her re-envisioning of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” as a thrilling discovery of female sexuality. The film jumps—you cannot gently segue away from “Rite”—into other dances she choreographed, along with brief interviews with her dancers. When Wenders voices that this is no...
