Laetitia Pople quote iconGans te min dans in (lang) Nureyev-prent.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconThere are enough fantastic individual scenes and certainly more than enough talent both behind and in front of the camera to suggest that a recut and remixed version of the White Crow could be something truly special. In this form, though, it’s an aggravating mess that I can’t even cautiously recommend despite all the things that are so, so good about it – of which there are many.

Tomatometer quote iconThe 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.
