I know absolutely nothing about dance, but yesterday I stole away and saw the movie PINA by Wim Wenders, and I can't think of another word to describe it other than transcendent. It's a documentary and it's in 3-D which I normally can't stand but I was mesmerized for the entire 100 or so minutes. I can't tell you what it's about -- other than love and loss and longing and men and women and sex and violence and intimacy and life and death and trust and joy -- but I understood it, somehow. I understood it all just through dance.
Go see it.
