    Tech elements, including music, lensing, costumes and production design are blazingly impressive and strikingly evocative on all levels.

    San Francisco Chronicle Peter Stack

    The big screen -- with that 3-D depth charge -- captures the strange magic of the "big top" Cirque in visual gulps.
