viktorgarre's Rating of Cabaret

viktor's Review of Cabaret

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Is this the best Musical ever?
Astonishing performances, especially Liza Minneli and Joel Gray, both of them seem to enjoy themselves in every scene, but the best of this film as I see it, is the complex story, nothing to do with the foolish plots of actual musicals. The intricate love story is as intriguing as amazing, the characters are very charismatic and it is all adorned by the intermittent stunning and beautiful performances at the Kit Kat Klub. Unlike the usual musical, where the story fuses with the songs and dancings, in this film the musical performances interrupt the story giving the idea that all is part of the acting.
A brilliant composition.
