A work of genius and one of the greatest films of the 1970s. Roy Scheider is sensational as Joe Gideon, a workaholic womanizing choreographer (loosely but clearly modeled on Fosse himself) whose unhealthy habits threaten to take a lethal toll, even as his vision approaches perfection. This passionate and spectacularly hard-edged meditation on life, art, and death is Fosse’s most personal work, and won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. (1979, 123 min, 35mm)

Cabaret, Sweet Charity, All That Jazz—something about the unsettling state of the world makes us want to revisit the unforgettable musicals of Bob Fosse.
The three musicals in this series showcase not just the dynamism of Fosse’s choreography, but also his social conscience, his compassionate view of human desire and sexuality, and his grasp of the dark side of humanity.
Thanks to the Austin Film Society, who presented this program earlier this year.
