Movie Haiku:On first viewing, the rehearsal scenes in this film about Chicagoís Joffrey Ballet are fascinating & the actual performance scenes are breathtaking. But see it again to appreciate how screenwriter Barbara Turner has cued up one of Altmanís most evocative microworlds, an exquisite auditory/visual tableau comparable to McCABE & NASHVILLE.
