Sam Rockwell manages to bring to his character enough complexity so as to not portray him as the stereotypical genius and awful human being. [Full Review in Spanish]

Besides being a meaty drama about a lifelong love-hate affair between two people, Fosse/Verdon does a wonderful job of explaining the creative process in all its magic and mystery.

While you don't have to be a dance fan to enjoy it, it will certainly help - many of Fosse/Verdon's classic creations are thrillingly recreated. It's a finger-clicking treat, set to a backbeat of ego and devotion.

Williams is excellent.

Because we don't see the evolution of their relationship, but only fragments of different stages of it, it is hard to see what kept drawing Verdon back to Fosse, or how much better their work was together than separately.

Fosse/Verdon's biggest flaw was perhaps that it plays everything a little safe. Fosse probably wouldn't have. It was careful, and clever, and revealing, but it should have been big and bold and sexy.

The glossy drama makes perfect Friday-night viewing: sexy showbiz glamour... mixed in with a gritty and timely storyline.
July 31, 2019
When looking back on a lifetime so reliant on the only two people in the world who really understood how the other one worked - who are we to even try and make it look as good as it felt?

[Michelle Williams] moves with the instinctive suppleness of a dancer and every charmingly mannered gesture seems to evoke a bygone age of studied femininity.

June 25, 2019
Fosse/Verdon is a treat for lovers of showbiz history with its recreations of famous film and theater sequences.

April 16, 2019
It's one of the most brazen and deeply sensual shows ever brought to screen. And if it doesn't sweep up come Emmys time, something is wrong with Hollywood.
April 15, 2019
Other than the scene where Eve verbally smacks down Hugo for interrupting her, the new professional status quo for Eve at the moment is less compelling than what's happening in her home life.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

[Williams] and Sam Rockwell have really great chemistry...I hope we can see a little more of her participation.
