CGiii Comment

Unfortunately marred by a strange obsession to make a film (within the film) of a terrible stand-up comedian - edit it these bits out and you have a great show of a hard living Fosse-like character - who is, heterosexually, very generous with his cock.

Great choreography - as you would expect...but, the repetition of the stand-up is chronic.

Good - could have been great.


The(ir) Blurb...

Choreographing and picking dancers for his current show whilst editing his feature film about a stand-up comedian is getting to Joe Gideon. Without the chemical substances, he would not have the energy to keep up with his girlfriend, his ex-wife, and his special dancing daughter. They attempt to bring him back from the brink, but it's too late for his exhausted body and stress-ravaged heart. He chain-smokes, uses drugs, sleeps with his dancers and overworks himself into open-heart surgery. Scenes from his past life start to encroach on the present and he becomes increasingly aware of his mortality.
