All That Jazz
(1979). Directed by Bob Fosse. Roy Scheider, Jessica Lange, Ann Reinking. (123 min.) DCP.
Bob Fosses sprawling, frantic autobiography/meditation/rant is a razzle-dazzle musical about a driven perfectionist addicted to cigs, sex, speed and booze. Nervy and jangling, Roy Scheider’s take on Fosses egomania results in one of the rare song-and-dance films devoid of optimism. "The best film I think I have ever seen." (Stanley Kubrick)
