Aro Favourite Chicago

 

USA 2002, 110 minutes
Dir. Rob Marshall
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy, Drama / Musical

 

Aroview: A screen adaptation of Bob Fosse’s 1970s smash hit stage musical that measures up to the legendary director-choreographer’s exacting standards to deliver as good a screen musical as there ever was.

Directed with breathless virtuosity and precision, this has a clutch of great musical numbers and a still contemporary theme (common to all Fosse’s work) of star-struck self-interest contaminating show-business, the publicity industry and the American justice system. Despite a whiff of self-congratulation about it (all concerned seem to know they’re onto a good thing), and the cast maybe looking a little awkward at times, this makes good on its promise and gives us the old razzle-dazzle with tremendous style and confidence.
