  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
While juggling a hectic schedule and a complicated personal life, Joe Gideon, better known as Bob Fosse (Schneider), reflects on life, death, and All That Jazz in this Academy Award

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 picture still shows many of the problems of the original DVD release, with contrast that appears to be slightly too low, and what can often be soft details. Fleshtones have a brownish, smeared look. There are improvements in the compression, as artifacts are not as noticeable. Blacks are deep, and shadow delineation is good, which can make for a dimensional image. (Danny Richelieu)
