All That Jazz surprised me on many levels. Underneath all that dazzle and glitter there was a really serious tone to the movie as it primarily dealt with themes of dysfunctional relationships and death. It also portrayed a deeply flawed, but therefore deeply human man played to perfection by Roy Scheider. This Academy Award-nominated performance is one of the best I've ever seen. The music and dance numbers are all brilliant. Well, perhaps the last one went on a bit too long, though it was probably done on purpose to strengthen the theme and impact of that curtain call.
My favourite movie of all time, and very underrated. Every line and every performance is so perfect. The ending with "bye, bye life" is probably one of the best scenes in film history.
