Quotes

Eddie Israel: American consumerism, you know. This and that. That's supposed to be a life. Have a dog. Have a cat. Have a house. Have a car. Have a suit. Have a fucking tie. That's the lie that's been sold to us.The dream hasto do with industrialization. It's a mechanical thing, it doesn't work.

Madonna Hated This Movie
22 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is a strange and disturbing experimental movie. A rare and great performance by Madonna. She actually can act under the control of the right director. Although, I hear she hated. It seems ironic that she finally makes a good movie and doesn't even realize it. I guess she made some complaints that she thought her character was going to be stronger. (Funny, if she wants to be a Feminist Avenger, or some kind of role model of strength, maybe she shouldn't have made a career out of exploiting herself for fame and the all mighty dollar. Okay, now I'm ranting, but isn't funny how men are especially really down with the NeoFeminist Bull about how it's actually empowering for women to exploit themselves.) Ferrara plays with the autobiographical nature of the subject matter. The plot centers on a film director who compartmentalizes his personal and professional life, until the secrets of his professional life overwhelm him.
