Critic Reviews for Cunningham
Even decades since creation, Cunningham's choreography still stuns... Stripped away from convention and without explanation, it flies, but stuck inside tired modes of storytelling, it only stumbles.
If Kovgan's sharp restagings in subway tunnels and spartan woods are inventive, so too is her handling of archive footage, her subject found in motion inset on screen alongside scribbled notes, as if alive inside a scrapbook.
[A] delightful - if occasionally baffling - portrait of one of the most revolutionary creative artists of the 20th century.
Worthwhile, even if the dance sequences are lost in the editing.
The film is, I think, just as Cunningham would have wanted it: cerebral, highbrow and mildly frustrating, with nothing so conventional as talking heads or context.
