    Synopsis


    A Chorus Line
    Broadway's celebratory musical about rejection makes it to the screen in a fizzless adaptation by Richard Attenborough that misses the whole point of the Broadway show -- i.e. the dancing and the dancers. Instead, the dancers become a limp Greek chorus for the dead love affair between a choreographer, Zach (a pre-Gordon Gekko Michael Douglas) and his old flame, Cassie (Alyson Reed) the star dancer. Zach is holding try-outs for a new Broadway musical and, as armies of dancers are brought on stage to audition for Zach, he sits in the darkened recesses of the theater, puffing on a cigarette, as he winnows out hopeful dancers who want to become part of the chorus line for Zach's new show. Finally, Zach has reduced the dancers to 16 men and women, and he asks each of them to step to the footlights and tell him about their lives and their dreams. But backstage, while the dancers are confessing their pasts to Zach, Zach's past walks through the stage door. Cassie, Zach's ex-lover, whom Zach met, courted and broke up with in the theatrical environs, has returned. Once a big star, Cassie has returned to the theater -- not to see Zach but to audition for Zach's musical. She needs the work. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      A Chorus Line finally arrives on blu ray, and thank god it got a true ly filmic transfer. I have been waiting for this to be released on blu ray for a long time now, and was worried that it might not get a faithful transfer, but to my delight it is a very good transfer and doesn't have all of that digial tweekness going on such as false edge enhancements or DNR. It looks very much like a FILM transferred from a really clean film print.

      I've looked for A Chorus Line years. First when it was a video. This time I was looking for a DVD. Found it in a couple of places but Best Buy is my location of choice. I loved watching it again after so many years. It was such a pleasure. I was a dancer of a different sort and love watching choreography and music. Thank you for such bliss.

      I bought this DVD since I've seen the musical and have always loved it. I know that the movie musicals never compare to the real thing, but felt this missed it's mark. I still loved the musical performances, though.

      Always nice to see Broadway forever encapsulated in time with Hollywood when done right. Although nowhere near as flawless as Chicago, A Chorus Line Proves to be highly entertaining if nothing else.
