The Company


I’m a little conflicted about this one. I love Robert Altman for his willingness to take risks … but sometimes it works better than others. The dance numbers are all well worth watching, some are really great. The story never really comes together; in fact, there is very little story at all, which makes it seem strange, because we know Malcolm McDowell and Neve Campbell are actors, though Campbell sure can dance. It looks and feels like a documentary, and maybe it should have been. But that’s been done before, many times. Hard to find a new and interesting angle on that … but this isn’t it.
