Criterion is releasing a new, restored BLU-RAY/DVD release of Bob Fosse’s 1979 musical masterpiece, All That Jazz.
Roy Scheider plays Fosse alter-ego “Joe Gideon,” a sex and drugs prone workaholic balancing career (a new Broadway show while editing a new movie) with personal life. P.s. – the personal life sees less success than the professional.
