Technically this isn't a movie. It's just all of Madonna's MTV music videos strung together from the earliest (1985 I believe) to 1990. If you hate Madonna there's no point in even considering looking at this. But if you're a fan this is a must have collection. The video images are crisp and clear and the sound is nice and strong. Not every video works--I've NEVER liked "La Isla Bonita" but the highlights outnumber the bad ones. The best are "Borderline", "Express Yourself" (some STRONG homoerotic imagery in this one), "Oh Father", "Material Girl" (her Marilyn Monroe imitation is incredible), "Papa Don't Preach" and "Open Your Heart" (this one is pretty sleazy--even for Madonna). I do have a few complaints. Where's "True Blue" and "Crazy For You"? And do we REALLY need to see "Vogue" twice? The video itself is fine but her appearance at the MTV video awards is bewildering and has the WORST lip syncing I've ever seen. Still this is a fun DVD. Recommended.
