The Bowles cycle is a gruesomely instructive guide to our worst show biz conventions.
August 12, 2008
Bob Fosse's direction is as chaotic as it was in his previous Sweet Charity, a desperate scramble after a style.

...the context of Germany on the eve of the Nazi ascent to power makes the entire musical into an unforgettable cry of despair.

"The Nazi musical," as star Liza Minnelli glibly put it, has felt pertinent for a long time.

A truly great movie adapted from truly great source material, but it achieves most of its greatness by thoroughly gutting and re-imagining that source.

Whatever this 1972 feature is, it's entertaining and stylish, though maybe not quite as serious as it wants to be.

The screenplay, which never seems to talk down to an audience while at the same time making its candid points with tasteful emphasis, returns the story to a variety of settings.

Much-lauded, Fosse's look at pre-Nazi Germany is pretty uneven and uninspired -- his work is far better when we're inside the Kit Kat Club where there's singing and dancing to be had.

Let's just say it: the best thing going in director Bob Fosse's tour de force is Joel Grey. As the Master of Ceremonies at the infamous Berlin Kit-Kat club, Grey steals every scene he's in and makes us hope for more.
