All that JAZZ
Are you a fan of Jazz? Then you are in luck with this delicious drink for the summer. It will take you down the road to music and movies then spin you back around to find the right take on your favorite movie. So let’s look at the incredible film, “All that Jazz.”
All That Jazz is a 1979 American musical drama film directed by Bob Fosse. The screenplay, by Robert Alan Aurthur and Fosse, is a semi-autobiographical adventure based on aspects of Fosse’s life and career as a dancer, choreographer, and director.
The movie is about Joe Gideon, a theater director and choreographer trying to balance his career during his latest Broadway musical while editing a Hollywood film he has directing. According to Wikipedia, “He is a workaholic who chain-smokes cigarettes; without a daily dose of Vivaldi, Visine, Alka-Seltzer, Dexedrine, and sex, he wouldn’t have the energy to keep up the biggest “show” of all—his life. His girlfriend Katie Jagger, his ex-wife Audrey Paris, and daughter Michelle try to pull him back from the brink, but it is too late for his exhausted body and stress-ravaged heart. In his imagination, he flirts with an angel of death named Angelique.”
