Fosse/Verdon: Miniseries (2019)


Miniseries
Fosse/Verdon

Critics Consensus

Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams give viewers plenty of razzle and dazzle in Fosse/Verdon -- a straightforward miniseries that is hampered by rote biographical tropes, but still shimmies with the requisite glitz, grit, and all that jazz audiences crave.

Critic Reviews for Fosse/Verdon Miniseries

All Critics (78) | Top Critics (31)

Fosse/Verdon's biggest flaw was perhaps that it plays everything a little safe. Fosse probably wouldn't have. It was careful, and clever, and revealing, but it should have been big and bold and sexy.

[Michelle Williams] moves with the instinctive suppleness of a dancer and every charmingly mannered gesture seems to evoke a bygone age of studied femininity.

Rockwell is fully invested in a role that challenges him well beyond the semi-caricature he played in Vice. Self-assured and brusque when calling the shots, he's otherwise an emotional adolescent, or sometimes an infant.

Scenes play out as if viewers are seeing them from inside the director's head, experiencing the swings between his hyperego and his crashing insecurity... These moments are ingenious, and they bring a vibrant theatricality to the series.

Sam Rockwell manages to bring to his character enough complexity so as to not portray him as the stereotypical genius and awful human being. [Full Review in Spanish]

The series shows in an attractive way the life of these two artists... [and it's] based on an intelligent script. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 28, 2019 | Full Review…

In an incandescent performance, Michelle Williams captures Verdon's intuitive intelligence and irresistible exuberance, while Sam Rockwell depicts the workaholic essence of Fosse's weariness.

Aug 21, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Besides being a meaty drama about a lifelong love-hate affair between two people, Fosse/Verdon does a wonderful job of explaining the creative process in all its magic and mystery.
