Movie Reviews

Outstanding and Beyond Expectations
Ivan D. Cortes | Miami FL or Santiago Chile | 05/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD was absolutely outstanding for me (unfamiliar with modern dance) and exceeded my wife's expectations (very knowledgeable and familiar with modern dance). The reasons for this very positive impression were: Martha herself narrates and explains the whole DVD, the film producer also provides insights into Martha's life and personality, and original dancers performing the original productions.

Very enjoyable either as an expert or as a beginner."
Excellent Resource

"Wonderful! These 2 DVDs allow you to watch 3 performances and listen to commentaries on them afterwards. These commentaries help you to understand the meanings of the movements in the dances. There is even older footage of Appalacian Spring which is compared to the newer version which I found interesting. I was particularly interested in Martha Graham's techniques, and there is some filming of some of those with her voice narrating and explaining them. It is a treat to hear her speak. For people interested in the filming aspect of the performances and others at that time period, it is neat to hear what Nathan Kroll has to say on that subject."
