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

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.

Fosse and Scheider have never been better.

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

...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.

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

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.

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

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
