NUREYEV

OUT 25 SEPTEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen -

This well-crafted whistlestop tour of Ru­dolf Nureyev’s ca­reer, from Siberian urchin to global bal­let su­per­star, makes all the right stops (his 1961 air­port de­fec­tion, ’60s part­ner­ship with Margot Fonteyn, his se­cret bat­tle with Aids). But un­like Jac­qui and David Mor­ris’ haunt­ing McCullin (2012), this chooses clut­ter over clar­ity, pil­ing archive footage, au­dio in­ter­views and dance ex­tracts into crammed frames.
