"Based on director Bob Fosse's own extravagant life, this vibrant and spectacular film follows Fosse's alter ego. Joe Gideon in his relentless pursuit of sex, drugs and self-destruction. His womanizing both supports and debilitates him as he juggles his mistress, ex-wife and beloved daughter. Hovering over all of his excess is an angel. The proceedings are set amid rapturous dream sequences, lavish production numbers and fabulous sets."
