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.

All That Jazz is Bob Fosse's semi-autobiographical film about a musical theater director/choreographer whose lifestyle may finally kill him, and it is a triumph of elliptical editing, working on several levels simultaneously - musical, biopic, deathbed confession, surreal fantasy - at once funny and tragic, and like all its characters, brutally honest. The names have been changed, but even the protagonist's ultimate end prefigure Fosse's own 8 years later, so one can easily see the character's lack of virtue as Fosse's own. He treats himself with such snark, however, that it's hard to find the film a self-serving apology, and I personally loved the way hallucinations broke the fourth wall and revealed the fakery of the entertainment world, which the film itself is a part of. And it all ends on a dark punchline, setting tragedy to comic timing. And of course, some great dance numbers, that goes without saying. Not always easy to take in, but worth your time.

"Oh oh! I think we just lost the family audience." - My thought right from the beginning.

Kind of misogynist and even a little bit racist, but still great dance numbers

I don't know how I feel about the movie. I don't think I can appreciate it. Maybe it is so philosophical. I was bored at parts.. But, the ending.. not even the song .. spoiler

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.
