Law Music Video: Razzle Dazzle

Today's installment in the Law Music Video Series is Razzle Dazzle from the movie Chicago.

Is a trial a "search for truth"? Or is it a contest - the one who tells the best story wins?
Is the difference between persuading the jury and deceiving the jury a bright line or a razor's edge?
Do TV cameras in a courtroom promote or impede fidelity to truth?
Do they encourage or discourage showmanship?
What is the trial lawyer's craft - presenting evidence or performing theatre?
