The White Crow (2019)
Critic Consensus: The White Crow lacks the nimble grace of its subject, but as a reasonably diverting primer on a pivotal period in the life of a brilliant artist, it just about sticks the landing.

Critic Reviews for The White Crow
Fiennes' drab biopic of Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev drains the color from his life, and comes across as cold as a Soviet winter.
Ultimately, "The White Crow" seems tailored to appeal to moviegoers who are already fans of Nureyev's idiosyncratic dancing and want to know more about how it got that way.
The film may go to lengths to tell us that Nureyev was sensational to watch, but we don't experience much of this power or magnetism as viewers.
It's a movie full of small pleasures, such as the Polaroid-ish softness of the cinematography, Fiennes' quietly noble performance as Nureyev's mentor Pushkin, and the glimpses of the ballet studios...
Unless you have a special interest in Nureyev, Russian ballet, or the Cold War's impact on the arts at mid-century, "The White Crow" might be something better heard about than experienced.
