Bob Fosse

Cabaret – I generally don’t like musicals, but Fosse reinvented them with this one.
Lenny – Very good biopic on Lenny Bruce. All comedians know him, and owe him. Great B & W photography from Bruce Surtees (son of million time Oscar nominated cinematographer, Robert Surtees (Covington, KY)).
All That Jazz – Fosse made a film about himself and was not kind. Probably Roy Scheider’s best performance.
Star 80 – Pretty good character study on murdered Playboy bunny, Dorothy Stratten. The big controversy here is when Mariel Hemingway got implants for the role. See Eric Roberts before he hamstrung his career.
