ALL THAT JAZZ
Tuesday, July 25
Directed by Bob Fosse
Starring Roy Scheider and Jessica Lange
Winner of four Academy Awards.
(1979) “It’s showtime!” as Roy Scheider’s five-packs-a-day, womanizing workaholic director-choreographer lands him in intensive care and a date with Jessica Lange’s Angel of Death. Fosse’s 8 ½ sees his life as a series of high concept production numbers. DCP. Approx. 123 min.
“All That Jazz set a new standard for speed and complexity, its structure boasting as many temporal pirouettes as the headiest art house fare. Yet the film never feels labored. It’s not homework. It’s showtime.”
– Matt Zoller Seitz
“An uproarious display of brilliance, nerve, dance, maudlin confessions, inside jokes and, especially, ego.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
“Fosse’s finest cinematic achievement.”
– Slant Magazine
“One of the most self-indulgent movies ever made—but blessedly so.”
– The Dissolve
“A must for Fosse fans.”
– Leslie Halliwell
