All That Jazz (1979) (SC)
Release Date: April 28, 2005.
"A masterwork. An extravagant achievement that will be seen again and again."
Gene Shalit, NBC-TV.
Part tragic, part comic, this outrageous look at life in the fast lane is the Academy Award winning musical about Bob Fosse's excessive life in show business. Played by Roy Scheider, Fosse's alter-ego drives him over the edge and soon find that 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. -- (C) 20th Century Fox, 1979, USA.
