Flashy footage in Crazy Horse

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2012 at 10:00 AM

If a documentary on a strip club sounds a little risqué, that's at least part of the point in Crazy Horse, which screens as a part of The Light Factory's First Run Films. Still, acclaimed filmmaker Frederick Wiseman goes beyond the prurient glitter and glam by exploring the history and context of the legendary Parisian cabaret that focuses on art as much as on boobs and butts.

In addition to requisite shots of naked dancers, Wiseman captures behind-the-scenes footage of the French landmark, which is up there with the Louvre and Eiffel Tower as things you must see in gay Paris.

$5-$7. May 18, 7:30 p.m. and May 19, 7:30 p.m. The Light Factory, 345 N. College St. 704-333-9755. www.lightfactory.org.
