DVD: “All That Jazz”

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.

  • Audio commentary featuring editor Alan Heim
  • Selected-scene audio commentary by actor Roy Scheider
  • New interviews with Heim and Fosse biographer Sam Wasson
  • New conversation between actors Ann Reinking and Erzsebet Foldi
  • Episode of the talk show Tomorrow from 1980, featuring director Bob Fosse and choreographer Agnes de Mille
  • Interviews with Fosse from 1981 and 1986
  • On-set footage
  • Portrait of a Choreographer, a 2007 documentary on Fosse
  • The Soundtrack: Perverting the Standards, a 2007 documentary about the film’s music
  • Interview with George Benson from 2007, about his song “On Broadway,” which opens the film
