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.
I started clapping, alone in my livingroom. Breath taking directing.
"Oh oh! I think we just lost the family audience." - My thought right from the beginning.
