    Reader comments on The Dancer Upstairs

    Subject: The Dancer Upstairs
    Date: May 30, 2004
    Sender: AtimPrevious | Next

    I think the reviewer (Tanzer) completely missed the mark. He came to the movie blinded by his own expectations of the movie and the message it should portray, and let his bias blind him to the real message of the film.

    This movie made me think seriously about the people who REALLY suffer because of political violence. The peasants, the poor, the everyday people, going about their business, trying to live their lives.

    Yes, the film had its flaws - one of them being that it was too long - but it was by no means timid. It was powerful and thought-provoking enough for me to go out and search for more information about it, and the revolution it was based on.
