Company, The

Rating = B

If this movie was not about modern dance (an art form I particularly enjoy), I might not have given it as high a rating as I have. There is almost no plot. There are no main characters; even Neve Campbell, whose project this movie was, is more or less just another dancer in the company. However, many of the dance scenes (especially the opening number with lots of long ribbons) are pretty, and the dance is filmed relatively straight (not constant cutting as in Chicago to generate artificial excitement). I also felt I was getting an inside look at the less-than-pretty operation of a dance company and the people in it, especially the dancers who mostly keep working hard and accept the life's trials and successes as they come because it lets them continue to work at their art.
