Cabaret

Cabaret ★★★★★

A film whose imperfections make it perfect, an entirely gratifying combination of dazzling visual exhibitions, historical turmoil, and the dramatic pressure within sexuality. It both acts as a timeless warning for the act of ignoring the dangerous state of your own country and a time capsule for 70s cinema and taking a turn from classic, MGM, traditional musicals. It has voices like Liza's and Joel's, beyond talents like Fosse and Unsworth, and an exquisite array of unique cultural music. The result? literate and sensual, vulnerable and experimental and stylistically demanding. If you ask me, this is the best film of 1972.
