Rating: 3/5 -- The film gives the impression that much of Fiennes' attention went into working with Ivenko on shaping the details of this portrait -- and it is psychologically convincing, whether or not it has much to do with the real man. Full Review
The Age (Australia)
Jul 17, 2019
Lacks that passion, spark and danger which made Nureyev such a master. Full Review
Backseat Mafia
Aug 2, 2019
Rating: 4.5/5 -- ...a taut dramatic thriller that is as much about overcoming adversity and the drive of an artist to be free, as it is about Nureyev, the Cold War or ballet. Full Review
We Are Movie Geeks
Jul 29, 2019
Rating: 4/5 -- The Nureyev story is a very good one, and Fiennes and Hare tell it well. Full Review
The Australian
Jul 19, 2019
Rating: 4/5 -- The White Crow powerfully suggests that an appetite for appreciating art as well as performing it shaped Nureyev's fluid self. Full Review
Dec 11, 2019
Rating: 3/5 -- The White Crow offers up all these elements of Nureyev - his past, his heat, his vulnerabilities - but all those parts are dancing around each other incongruously rather than as a well-choreographed ensemble piece. Full Review
Aug 6, 2019
Rating: 2.5/5 -- The solid final 20 minutes of the film demonstrate how strong a director Fiennes can be, but it's a slow, obviously deliberate build up that might test the patience of those who don't have a standing interest in the dancer or of this period in history. Full Review
