Featured Filmmaker: Bob Fosse

NUMBER OF THEATRICAL FILMS DIRECTED: 5. We highlight the career of the late, acclaimed director of Cabaret, Lenny, All That Jazz, and others. By Joe Corey III for filmforce

Bob Fosse's career as a film director was relatively short (1969-1983), but the few films he made are mesmerizing in their treatment of society's underbelly. Fosse came to the world of cinema through his career as a dancer and choreographer. While in high school in Chicago, Fosse was a tap dancer-singer at burlesque clubs. He shared the stage with strippers and sleazy comics.

The man behind the 'first adult musical'
By Donald Hutera for The Times

Bob Fosse's best work was Cabaret, of which a free DVD comes with The Times on Saturday
The slinky, syncopated manoeuvres and finger-snapping economy of the choeographer Bob Fosse, which found supreme expression in the film Cabaret, are an indelible part of the entertainment world. Fosse brought sex to the American movie musical.

I love Cabaret and parts of Sweet Charity (e.g., "Big Spender" and the fancy restaurant scene) but other parts of the latter made me cringe. The scenarist(?), composer, lyricist and choreographer seemed to have no grasp of how the hip/love generation spoke or moved or what music they listened to. I don't think those scenes worked even as send-ups.
