I'm gonna die, haha, I think, I think I'm gonna die, Byebye life, I think, Bye, I think....I think but, I don't, I..... I DON'T, I DON'T, I DON'T WANNA DIE, I DON'T, I, I DON'T WANNA DIE ! I DON'T WANNA DIE ! I, I, I DON'T WANNA DIE, I, I DON'T WANT, I DON'T WANNA DIE, DON'T WANNA DIE, I DON'T WANNA DIE, I DON'T, I, I...... I DON'T WANNA DIE, DON'T I, I DON'T WANNA DIE, I DON'T WANNA . . .
3.5 Really well made indeed but I'm tired of these stories of tragic artists. A selfish man afraid of being average (ugh) hurts everyone around him but of course he thinks he cannot escape the unhealthy routine of Show Business and when it ends up killing him, he doesn't fight to survive because he'd rather die a martyr than face how awful he's been to everyone. Great dance numbers apart from the last one.
A cum stained tap routine. Eye drops galore. That black bedroom. I just wish you weren’t so generous with your cock. Put your leg in arabesque. The smoking doctor. Airotica. Surgeons playing white tambourines. Jessica Lange playing Death. The dream sequences were my favorite - just beautiful. The lighting, the color schemes, the dance numbers. A pure delight.
It may be Fosse's 8 1/2, but that doesn't take away from how brilliant it stands on its own. Scheider is a perfect lead & if the film is over the top & ego-driven, it still works. Combining passionate & exhilarating musical numbers with a very downbeat story, it's a perfect companion with Fellini's film.
Bob Fosse opened his heart, body and soul in this meditation of his own art and life and created no less than (in my opinion) the best musical in film history. Special attention to the way Alan Heim manages the material in his brilliant & masterful use of editing.
Having only seen one previous Fosse film, Lenny, I felt unprepared for All That Jazz. What erupted on the screen before me was one of the best films I think I've ever seen. There's nothing else comparable. My god, the editing. Roy Scheider's best performance. The movie goes from massive to minute in one cut. I just tapped into a whole new corner of cinema that has, somehow, eluded me my whole life. Outstanding
A very ground-breaking musical but not the *splendor* everyone raves about. It suffers with a terrible lack of rhythm, which is unforgivable since it's more like a drama with some musical numbers in it. But, seriously, if you're into musicals the "Air Rotica" scene will surely blow your mind.
