Film, "Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D": Bring on the Acrobats

"Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D": Bring on the Acrobats

The ravishing and kitschy Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away is the rare movie whose title serves as an accurate indicator of whether you would enjoy seeing it. If you think it sounds good, it damn straight is; if not, beware…

How Do They Do That?!

Busby Berkeley’s habit of making kaleidoscopic patterns out of hundreds of legs, Japanese bunraku puppet theater traditions, and old-fashioned cheerleading tricks all get a workout at The Experience of Flight in Dreams. Garrett and Moulton Productions, using the abovementioned —…

Calendar, Night&Day On Whirling Stages

On Whirling Stages

It's impossible to exaggerate the scale of Busby Berkeley's work: This is the man who gave us hundreds and hundreds of “girls,” arranged kaleidoscopically, simpering in unison. No one and nothing has approached the choreographer's successes of the 1930s Warner…

"Cremaster Cycle": Matthew Barney exposes himself at the Roxie

Juicy and Delicious

It's like if Busby Berkeley, Gregory Hines, and Merle Haggard collaborated on a performance project: The Barbary Coast Cloggers do kind of a Western hand-holding stompy-boy ballet thing. It could either be incredibly gay, or incredibly not gay. In this…

Music, Reviewed Celebration

Celebration

The kaleidoscopic cover of Celebration's The Modern Tribe features an image of a chorus line straight out of the notebook of Hollywood choreographer and director Busby Berkeley. While the music inside isn't quite as over-the-top as the illustration suggests, the…

Film, Madly Ever After

Madly Ever After

Despite its title, Confetti, a chaotic mockumentary in the finest tradition of English vulgarity, has nothing whatever to say about marriage. It's a loud belch in the face of a billion-dollar wedding industry that has sprung up to service the…
