Crazy Horse

Rating = B

This is a Fredrick Wiseman documentary done in his usual style: fly-on-the-wall filming, lots of editing, no overall story arc, no Q&A, no voice over explanation. It is about the Crazy Horse, the famous cabaret in Paris. I was much tempted to start singing the lyrics to the "Dance 10, Looks 3" song from the Broadway show Chorus Line — the one about T&A. As in (I suppose) every other human endeavor, designing and putting on the show at Crazy Horse takes enormous amounts of detailed work.
