For those who can't get enough of Michael Flatley's flaming feet, Michael Flatley: Gold may be the hottest ticket in town. It chronologically intersperses interviews with Flatley with scenes of his greatest hits, including Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, and other special performances. It's still a little awe-inspiring that Flatley was able to help turn the humble Irish peasant step dance into a spectacle evoking Elvis, arena rock, George M. Cohan, WWF Smackdown, and Siegfried, if not Roy--but the man's fans can't be denied. Those who like their moves with a little less flash will appreciate the earlier scenes, including a 1987 performance at the Kennedy Center; Flatley's passionate if preening reunion with the Chieftains in 1998 is also a thrill. Includes clips from Lord of the Dance and Feet of Flames as well as sneak preview footage from upcoming shows and an exclusive interview with Michael himself. 2000-color-130 min-NR. I must disclose that I am a bit of an overeager fan of Irish Dancing at least in the form of Lord of the Dance, Feet of Flames, and Riverdance. I have seen all of the shows several times and had the fortune of going backstage after a Lord of the Dance performance to meet a few of the dancers (who were quite friendly and generous with their time). And, I listen to the music as I work out. I have all of the shows on DVD and video and to this day watch them almost daily. As such, I was very happy when I learned of this new DVD title, Gold. Michael Flatley cerainly is not shy and is known for his confidence, but this new DVD is extremely entertaining. I do not necessarily buy the sometimes manufactured sounding humility in this production and his accent seems to vary depending upon his audience, but we overlook the shortcomings in those we admire, right? The DVD contains highlights from the original Riverdance show and Michael Flatley's two shows including dance peformances of Feet of Flames in Budapest. The DVD is arranged in a long interview format interspersed with performances in a chronological order. Included are clips from his days with the Chieftans, dancing at the Kennedy Center, performing at Eurovision, Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, Feet of Flames, and rehearsals for what may be an upcoming movie-video. The Budapest Feet of Flames performances contain short interviews with some of the dancers. The DVD is arranged in a home moview-documentary format begining with pictures of Michael Flatley's family and childhood all the way through and including performances and photographs from the present. There also is a very interesting making of Feet of Flames which is included as well. One really can get a sense of what it was like making the one off show. I found this DVD to be extremely entertaining, if not a bit long. (2hrs, 10 mins.) The only concern I have is that though the film is not rated, some parents might find a couple of the scenes objectionable for viewing for young children. I saw the Feet of Flames World Tour live here in L.A. when it came through. Personally it was very enjoyable, but I was downright embarrassed in the Stolen Kiss scene when Flatley stripped that girl and she jumped on him. It reminded me a bit of some trashy Vegas show, complete with seductive guitar riffs. There were YOUNG children in that audience. Yes, Flatley is a genius, and as an Irish dancer I am in awe of what he has done for my sport, but I felt he could have left his midlife crisis out of an otherwise wholesome performance. If as a parent you are concerned about what your child will be watching, I would recommend watching the DVD first or skipping tracks. Otherwise, Gold is a rare treat that can't be passed up.
