One way to rate a movie is by how much of the film you remember after 26 years. Produced in 1980,. this being one of the hundred of thousands of films I have watched in all those year, that I remember vividly. It gives a wonderfully voyeuristic ( sort of a prehistoric "Survivor" type show ) view that lets you see and feel the struggles , trials and tribulations, the heartbreaks and ecstasies of auditioning for a Broadway show. But it goes further that that, it draws you deep into the lives of of each of the young adults and shows you a glimpse of their personal lives and hardships and sacrifices each has endured just to get where they are trying to get a job in the chorus line now. I changed my mind -- I was going to give this film a " 7 " but the more I type the more I think it deserves a " 9 1/2 ".. p.s. No film ever gets a 10 from me -- No Matter how good you think a film is, there's inevitability always another film that comes along that's better..
