    Fosse's last film is not a farewell masterpiece (that would be "All That Jazz"), but nevertheless it is uncompromising and grim story based on the real life tragedy of Playboy bunny Dorothy Stratten.

For me that is the biggest risk this film takes - it kinda wants to make fun of the paradigm it clearly belongs to itself. There are other problems as well, mainly with the storyline, but if you look at this work as a collection of vignettes, then it is ok and even makes sense in the context of its themes. But - damn - it felt so contemporary and was constantly funny, so definetely is must see for everyone seeking the common sense in our crazy world.
