This high-concept Bob Fosse public self-glorification/flagellation has fascinated me since I first saw it on the big screen. It's garish, jarring, and, in places, forced. But I still always enjoy it, beginning to end.

Fascinating and memorable supposedly semiautobiographical movie spoiled somewhat by a ponderous ending. 3-1/2 stars to the beginning of the end, 1 star for the last half hour.

If you're looking for a visual representation of sweaty irritation...look no further. Here we have ugly, annoying people doing ugly, annoying things - Set to Music! Not just music, bad music. And by "ugly" I mean the all around lack of character depth (or STORY for that matter.) Visually, it is a murky mess with little to offer but laughable dance sequences and rapid jolting edits. I believe they call this film's visual style, "Perspiration." (As the entire movie is dripping with it.) Has it been a while since your skin crawled? Then give her a go. But if you would like to keep your nerves in tact, I recommend not watching past the opening musical "On Broadway" audition scene.

In "All That Jazz," legendary director/choreographer Bob Fosse tells the story of his life, a life of pure excess. His alter ego, Joseph Gideon, is played by Roy Scheider, and takes us through his early days in burlesque to his later years of failing health. We see scenes of his life presented as a big, flashy stage production.

All That Jazz - Review

"At least I don't have to lie to you anymore"

"All That Jazz" might be one of the best films I've seen in awhile. Depressing but brilliant . Taking the Broadway style of regret and death by making it so captivating. Director Bob Fosse takes the most negative parts of his life in the musical business and leaves a lasting memory into this masterpiece.

A unique character study of Joe Gideon (played flawlessly by Roy Scheider), he directs and writes Broadway musicals. While also has sex with every woman he can, smokes a lot and I do mean A LOT. He's very unstable and I will leave it as that. However, I will leave you with this, it's Roy Scheider best performance of his entire career.

Everything from the superb editing, characters, and the opening scene are on anot...

4/4
