All That Jazz Reviews

Sarah Boslaugh

...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.

All That Jazz is a speed freak of a movie, flying by at breakneck pace, then screeching to a halt so the protagonist can indulge in some serious ruminations on death

Savagely witty on backstage life and audaciously edited.

Though Scheider is a wry, sensitive actor, he soon gets lost in the vulgar theatrics.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The dancing is frenzied, the dialogue piercing, the photography superb, and the acting first-rate, with non-showman Scheider an illustrious example of casting against type.

Almost every scene is excruciating (and a few are appalling), yet the film stirs an obscene fascination with its rapid, speed-freak cutting and passionate psychological striptease.

A self-important, egomaniacal, wonderfully choreographed, often compelling film which portrays the energetic life, and preoccupation with death, of a director-choreographer.

Ain't Jazz dance grand when you're dyin' ?

Emanuel Levy

Self-reflexive, narcissistic, and entertaining, this film is Fosse's 81/2 (he even uses Fellini's cinemtographer Rotunno). High production values and superb acting by Roy Scheider as the artist's alter-ego makes this morbid musical Fosse's best work.

All That Jazz compels us to deal emotionally with our own death and the values which give meaing to our lives.

Narcissistic and self-indulgent to a fault, it's also like nothing you've ever seen before and probably never will again.

Flawed but dazzling masterpiece with a stunning performance by Roy Scheider.

Fosse gets his kicks (and so will you) directing his own boffo bio flick.

| Original Score: 4/5

Bob Bloom
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Fosse at the top of his game; self-indulgent, but totally engrossing with Scheider doing a wicked impersonation of the director-choreographer.

| Original Score: 4/5

Interesting, but overrated

Fosse and Scheider have never been better.
