Barry Paris references Louise Brooks
Today, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette film critic Barry Paris referenced Louise Brooks in his review of a new documentary film about the Ballets Russes. Paris gives the film three stars, and describes it as "joyful." His review ends this way.
It's hard enough for us regular mortals to lose our youthful beauty and movement. How much harder must it be for these graceful octogenarian creatures? You will fall in love with them and their nobility.
"In my dreams I am not crippled," said Louise Brooks, a Denishawn dancer confined to a wheelchair at the end of her life. "In my dreams, I dance."
In this docu-dream, so do our Russians.
