the most astounding Dance Scenes ever filmed

Salma Hayek playing Frida Kahlo in Frida. I think this is the single most erotic scene ever filmed, and nobody even had to take their clothes off.
The Roxanne Tango from Moulin Rouge. I would barely average one trip a year to the cinema, but when Moulin Rouge was screening, I went five times to see it on the big screen.

The Cell Block Tango from Chicago.

Yes, I've just realised myself. These are all tangos. I must really like the tango. Okay, no more tangos, I promise.

Michael Jackson's Thriller has so many layers of cultural references by now that I couldn't even begin to try to unravel them and watch this objectively. But it rocks as hard as it ever did. I have no idea what happened to this man in the end, but when you look back, my god, he was so extraordinarily talented.

And there has to be some belly dancing. Something raw and authentic and unpolished, like Gadjo Dilo with Rona Hartner and Romain Duris. I couldn't decide between the scene where they dance together, or Rona Hartner's solo, so here are both of them.

  1. Thanks for the trip down Gadjo Dilo memory lane, loved that film so much at the time I even bought the soundtrack.
