Critic Reviews of "Cabaret"TIME MagazineAugust 12, 2008
Bob Fosse's direction is as chaotic as it was in his previous Sweet Charity, a desperate scramble after a style.VarietyJune 27, 2007
The screenplay, which never seems to talk down to an audience while at the same time making its candid points with tasteful emphasis, returns the story to a variety of settings.Chicago ReaderJune 27, 2007
Whatever this 1972 feature is, it's entertaining and stylish, though maybe not quite as serious as it wants to be.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Superbly choreographed by Fosse, the cabaret numbers evoke the Berlin of 1931 - city of gaiety and perversion, of champagne and Nazi propaganda - so vividly that only an idiot could fail to perceive that something is rotten in the state of Weimar.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
...the context of Germany on the eve of the Nazi ascent to power makes the entire musical into an unforgettable cry of despair.New York TimesMay 21, 2003
Everybody in Cabaret is very fine, and meticulously chosen for type, down to the last weary transvestite and to the least of the bland, blond open-faced Nazis in the background.Film Freak CentralJune 07, 2013
It's an all-time masterpiece, mercurial and timeless. I am changed every time I see it.Aisle SeatFebruary 08, 2013
Cabaret is in some respects a typical feel-good musical, yet it's also so much deeper than that.Common Sense MediaJanuary 04, 2010
Influential '70s musical features sex and mature themes.JWRJuly 22, 2009
Let's just say it: the best thing going in director Bob Fosse's tour de force is Joel Grey. As the Master of Ceremonies at the infamous Berlin Kit-Kat club, Grey steals every scene he's in and makes us hope for more.Shadows on the WallApril 20, 2008
simply masterful in every wayColeSmithey.comOctober 25, 2007
