Movies can be good, but Cabaret proves that any good movie is always better with Nazis (cf. Das Boot, The Dirty Dozen, The Blues Brothers).The story of an American cabaret performer and her English academic lover in 1931 Berlin, this Weimar Republic melodrama plays more like a Henry James novel than a Broadway musical. Bob Fosse's instincts for direction are spot-on, and the musical numbers frame the story nicely. RSDL, extras.
