Bob Fosse’s Dark Musicals
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 Bob 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)
