All That Jazz



What an amazing video to begin a sunny week. I definitely need to see this movie asap. Apart from the greatness of the scene, it’s interesting to see how the costumes palette is so Fall Winter 2009-10. And it’s very much sex, drugs and dance. Hmmm. And see this picture above, the venous costume, incredible.
For your information, Bob Fosse, who directed this musical and whose life inspired the screenplay, was recently brought back to light when Beyonce reproduced one of his choregraphies for her now-famous single ladies dance.
Below an extract of the “All That Jazz” wiki page. And then, the two single ladies dances, which is a real “FROM COOL … TO COOL”.

All That Jazz is a 1979 American musical film directed by Bob Fosse. The screenplay by Robert Alan Aurthur and Fosse is a semi-autobiographical fantasy based on aspects of the dancer, choreographer, and director’s life and career. The film was inspired by Fosse’s manic effort to edit his film Lenny while simultaneously staging his 1975 Broadway musical Chicago. It borrows its title from a Kander and Ebb tune in that production.
Choreographing and casting for dancers for his next Broadway show, while editing his severely over-budget and over-schedule Hollywood production about a standup comic is getting to Joe Gideon. He is a workaholic choreographer and theater director who chain-smokes and chain-sleeps with all of his dancers. 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 them 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. Decades of overworking and constant tremendous stress have gotten to Gideon. In his imagination, he already flirts with an angel of death named Angelique…
