Fosse: Ranked

on

In honor of the upcoming premiere of Fosse/Verdon, over which I am currently shivering with a substantial amount of Rocky Horror-style anticipation, a ranking of the films of the singular, legendary Bob Fosse, a magician of a filmmaker and my ultimate cinematic idol.

5. Star 80

Not for me. At all.

4. Sweet Charity

A bit of a mess, but an impossibly, irresistibly stylish one.

3. Lenny

Sublime.

2. All That Jazz

Sublimer.

1. Cabaret

Sublimest.

Sam and Michelle and company at FX had better do justice to Bob and Gwen (I’m hopeful they will), or it’s going to be a real Queen of Hearts situation for me.
