Cabaret

"Good"

Cabaret Review


Liza Minnelli's most famous work has her star as American singer Sally Bowles in 1930s Germany, where she falls for two men (including one bisexual) while trying to make ends meet singing at the Kit Kat Club, all while the Nazi rise to power builds around them. Much-lauded, Fosse's look at pre-Nazi Germany is pretty uneven and uninspired -- his work is far better when we're inside the Kit Kat Club where there's singing and dancing to be had. Also of note, the sound on this film is wretchedly bad to the point of near unwatchability. Originally based on the book Berlin Stories.
