Product Overview

Part tragic, part comic, this outrageous look at life in the fast lane in the Academy Award-winning musical about Bob Fosse's excessive life in show business.

Played by Roy Scheider, Fosse's alter-ego drives himself over the edge and soon finds he is caught between a recurring fantasy about his death and the reality of a near-death experience. Dazzlingly presented, this electrifying story about the perils of pushing yourself too hard is filled with Fosse's legendary song-and-dance choreography.

Reviews

Review Now that both Chicago and Cabaret have been dusted off and remounted as seemingly eternal fixtures on Broadway, and the film version of Chicago was such a rousing critical and commercial success, it's a good time to take a look back at one of the stranger entries in the career of choreographer/director Bob Fosse: All That Jazz...Fosse was never a neat-and-tidy director, and All That Jazz is definitely one of his messier creations. Overflowing with half-conceived ideas, the thing consumes itself even as it unspools...The final musical number is a perfect illustration of this schizophrenia...The conclusion is chillingly matter-of-fact and has eerie resonance with the circumstances surrounding Fosse's own death in 1987.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review In truth, All That Jazz is not a particularly upbeat film. Its celebratory moments, mostly captured in dance, are always tinged with irony. But it is also not a bleak film. Gideon may be dying, but Death is just another woman for him to seduce, another addiction to sate...All That Jazz invites its audience to debate that question even as we enjoy the striking visual moments Fosse creates on screen. This is a musical for people who distrust the idyllic world of musicals and an exploration of the creative process for anyone who has ever wondered what it costs to be a genius. In All That Jazz, Bob Fosse has choreographed a film with the psychological complexity (and solipsism) of Fellini, the audacity (and cynicism) of Stanley Kubrick, and the rhythm and verve of - well, of Bob Fosse.
