"With an irresistible humour, Rimmer speculates in The Dance on the nature of the film loop. We see a 1920s couple whirling around a dance floor ata dizzying pace ... Even after the technical building block of the film is evident, the vertiginous effect remains ... Uncanny in its ability to evoke acomplexity of responses from a simplicity of means."
     - Art and Cinema #2
