We gave it a C

The Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin is a modern rhapsodist of the silent-movie age. Here, however, he creates a facsimile of the herky-jerky gothic style of Nosferatu, only to wrap these gorgeous atmospherics around…a ballet film. The result is a feature-length antique-bloodsucker video, one that takes hold neither as dance nor as silent horror dream.
