Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
March 8th, 2007

Fosse, Fosse, Fosse

A dark twisted musical about a cabaret singer in Nazi Germany.
This film deals with the ambiguity of both sexuality and political affiliation under the guise of a nightclub act.
No one directs films like Bob Fosse. His dark, almost gothic, style is timeless, as we have seen in the new 'Chicago' both on Broadway and on screen.
Liza Minnelli kills her role as Sally Bowles. She is all wide-eyed innocence tempered with an alcoholic self-abuse streak. Michael York is the perfect counterpoint as the straight-laced bisexual paramour of both Sally and a few lads.
The centrepiece of the film is Joel Grey as the Master of Ceremonies. He keeps the film from lagging and plays his role with life and, yes, decadance that few others could pull off. He is both highly sexual and androgynous all at once, a classic performance.
Oh and the music. My favorite is 'Maybe This Time', but you have 'Money, Money', 'Two Ladies', and of course the classic title track.
One of the most unique and awesome musicals ever made.
