Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content. It’s the Great American Podcast where two friends learn about life as they float down the river of streaming services.
It’s season five of Paul and Corey Cross the Streams! This year, Paul and Corey have decided to try something a bit different: Instead of monthly themes, they’ve decided to improvise. Each subsequent episode will in some way be linked to the one that preceded it.
Based on Paul’s Annie (1982), Corey wanted to take a close look at Ann Reinking.
So, in this episode, the boys discuss All That Jazz (1979) – Bob Fosse’s thinly-veiled fictionalized autobiography. For good and for ill, Bob Fosse, through his art, made a hell of a case for the celebration of the auteur. With All That Jazz, he grapples with the fallout of it. But is this unrelenting examination of his own failures courageous or further manipulation?
