Movie Reviews

  • the performances, and the beautifully captured moments of dance, are strong enough to outshine any weak story elements; Oleg Ivenko, who bears a strong resemblance to Rudolph Nureyev, is transfixing, as well as Ralph Fiennes and Chulpan Khamatova
    3 of 4 by Katie Walsh [Tribune News Service ]
  • one obvious hurdle is that Rudolf Nureyev, while a fascinating figure, doesn't exactly fit the definition of a likable protagonist; Unlike its subject, "The White Crow" is ultimately forgettable
    Review rate : C by Vishnevetsky Ignatiy [AV Club ]
  • an athletic, confident, undemanding film; This retelling of Rudolf Nureyev's escape to the west survives some flat acting thanks to David Hare's nuanced script
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "The White Crow" is as striking and stirring as its subject, the ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev; Sometimes it's even a little bit clumsy, but its spirit is perfect
    4 of 5 by Ed Potton [Times (UK) ]
  • "The White Crow" doesn't reach its full potential; The narrative bounces all over the place trying to cover too much ground when concentrating on the core drama would have far better served the desired end
    by Todd McCarthy [The Hollywood Reporter ]
