Bob Fosse's direction is as chaotic as it was in his previous Sweet Charity, a desperate scramble after a style.

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.

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

Superbly choreographed by Fosse, the cabaret numbers evoke the Berlin of 1931 - city of gaiety and perversion, of champagne and Nazi propaganda - so vividly that only an idiot could fail to perceive that something is rotten in the state of Weimar.

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

Everybody in Cabaret is very fine, and meticulously chosen for type, down to the last weary transvestite and to the least of the bland, blond open-faced Nazis in the background.
