All That Jazz (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on August 26, 2003

A favorite of mine for a long time, though not without faults.  I think the whole “Air-otica” scene (“It’s the best damn work you’ve ever done”) is boring and overlong.  And Leland Palmer (Audrey) is just too darn fugly.  Minor quibbles, though.  The staginess of the dialogue during the Audrey/Katie/Michelle hallucinations bothered me for years, until I realized that was the point.  Now it only bothers me a little bit.  The worst thing you could say about it is that’s it incredibly egotistical… but that’s balanced out by the utter self-deprecation of the thing.  Rating: 9
