Watch Matt Zoller Seitz’s Unused Video Essay For All That Jazz


If you picked up the Criterion Collection Blu-ray release of Bob Fosse’s All That Jazz, but wondered where the video essay that Matt Zoller Seitz was (it was initially listed in the supplements when Criterion announced it), wonder no more!

Over at RogerEbert.com, Seitz pulls the curtain back a bit: 

The rationale, as I understand it, was that even though the chance of a legal challenge was remote, if one did happen, and if Criterion either went to court and lost or decided to fold before it came to that, they’d have to physically recall all the discs and reprint them with a reedited version of my piece (or without the piece). And that would be very expensive.
