Yeah, I know I always watch movies several years after their release, but I actually watched “Chicago” back in 2002.
The reason I feel compelled to post this now is because I am amazed at the sheer brilliance of this movie- today, I watched it for the 7th time and I still found myself gasping at how beautiful it is.
The movie – to me- is largely about the contrast between the reality of 1920’s Chicago and the fantasy of 1920’s Chicago as seen through the blue-tinted Jazz Age.
“Chicago” is simply brilliant. The directing is fantastic, the acting is perfect, and the choreography is stunning. I can also blabber about how great all that jazzy music is for days. Kudos to all involved.
Strongly recommended.
