Behold the first six minutes of Bob Fosse’s 1979 ‘All That Jazz’, a paean to musical theater, dance, creativity, life and death. To my eyes, the film looks better and better over time but nothing beats the above sequence. Edited within an inch of its life, it tells in a kinetic, bold and consistently inventive way the story of an open dance call and the process of whittling down a huge group of chorus line hopefuls to the final, small group of selects. That’s all I need to tell you. The sequence speaks clearly and forcefully for itself. By the way, if you missed it on Monday, here’s a Fosse dance sequence from ‘Sweet Charity’ (1969) called ‘The Aloof’ that’s also well worth a look.
