Village Voice
If only verisimilitude equaled quality. But unfortunately, schmaltzy music and drab melodrama drag down the otherwise graceful moves of Five Dances. Full Review
David DeWitt
The New York Times
A promising, though static, new film that never leaves its taciturn shadows for a single emotionally gripping moment. Full Review
Diego Costa
Slant Magazine
It's the moments when director Alan Brown stops worrying about clarifying plot and character motivation and lets the performances bring those into being that makes this an authentic project. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The gorgeous physicality is more impressive than the sketchy storyline of this dance-centric drama. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Though the film’s untested cast struggles with the drama, and the sketched-out story is often banal (there are several amateurish calls-to-mom scenes), the presentation of a specific city subculture is etched from the heart. Full Review
