All That Jazz

2 years, 7 months ago at Mar 29 16:23
Heavily indebted to Federico Fellini’s 8 ½ in its combination of reality and fantasy in exploring the artistic mind and temperament, All That Jazz is a reflective, energetic movie about a genius director/choreographer grappling with impending death. For such weighty material, All That Jazz feels incredibly alive, joyous even in its combination of self-examination and mordant humor.   Bob Fos... read more

A classic

Since this movie is a classic, I was really eager to check it out. To be honest, it took me a while to get into the damned thing. It probably had to do with the fact that I’m not a huge fan of musicals in general but Bob Fosse is one director who was really able to flawlessly combine musical numbers within a straightforward story. On top of that, his musicals were quite dark, at least, the ones ... read more

Description: Choreographer-turned-director Bob Fosse (Cabaret, Lenny) turns the camera on himself in this nervy, sometimes unnerving 1979 feature, a nakedly autobiographical piece that veers from gritty drama to razzle-dazzle musical, allegory to satire. It's an indication of his bravura, and possibly his self-absorption, that Fosse (who also cowrote the script) literally opens alter ego Joe Gideon's heart in a key scene--an unflinching glimpse of cardiac surgery, shot during an actual open-heart procedure. Roy Scheider makes a brave and largely successful leap out of his usual romantic lead roles to step into Gideon's dancing pumps, and su ... (more)

A classic

“Since this movie is a classic, I was really eager to check it out. To be honest, it took me a while to get into the damned thing. It probably had to do with the fact that I’m not a huge fan of musicals in general but Bob Fosse is one director who was really able to flawlessly combine musical numbers within a straightforward story. On top of that, his musicals were quite dark, at least, the ones he filmed, much darker than your average musical and it made them much more interesting to behold. Finally, I was quite impressed by Roy Scheider who played something completely different than his usual characters and he gave here probably his best performance. To be honest, the whole thing still felt like a huge egotrip obviously inspired by ‘8 1/2’ from Federico Fellini but, eventually, what” read more

"Roy Scheider Films don’t come more over-the-top than All That Jazz, Bob Fosse’s 1979 self-portrait of a choreographer for whom too much was never enough. In fact, were it not for the steady, understated presence of Roy Scheider as Fosse stand-in Joe Gideon, the whole thing might well do up in a burst of spontaneous combustion, spraying sequins and feather boas in all directions. Scheider, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work in All That Jazz, doesn’t seem like the most obvious cast"
