Nope - not for me. Yes, great camera work, incredible lighting and setting. But the beauty of dance - and the Wow factor at what a dancer can do - is in real time.
Manipulating the dance with slow motion, fast motion, cut aways, exaggerated leaps - is more about the camera work than the dancer.

Authorities are on the lookout for a chicken that was seen crossing the street . . . .

All sorts of neat surprises in the Senate budget including a cut of more than half a billion dollars to fight wildfires. Which is just fine because we all know states will be able to take up the slack . . . Or perhaps the argument is that the federal funding had been enabling wildfires . . .

I've read several of the books on the list (Gone Girl isn't prize worthy in my book) but one that should be on the list is "Carry the One" by Carol Anshaw.
An excellent story with excellent writing and a real bead on a big wedge of American culture.

Sort porn - gay or straight - do it somewhere else please.
