This was shot as a student film. Madonna was unknown at the time but demanded she be paid for her work. The director required her to sign a release and paid her 100 dollars for her work. Later when Madonna became successful she tried to ban the movie. The director refused citing the release she signed - -which only arose from her insistence to be paid. See more »
Opening disclaimer: A Certain Sacrifice is a rare piece of music history. Originally shot on Super 8mm in 1979, this film exhibits a raw and intimate experimental film style. Due to the limitations of the original medium, some technical inconsistencies may be apparent. See more »
Complete basement junk, that will make you sick while watching! The biggest con in Video market history. First of all I like to say, that this movie was shot in 1979, before Madonna hit the big time. It was released in 1985, and Madonna tried to (unsuccessfully) file a lawsuit to ban the movie. And it's no wonder why, the story is so crap, that is not worth going into, the production value sucks (at one point in the movie we see the colors fade up and down, the sound is sometimes clear, and sometimes sounds as if someone's farting!!...... And I could go on.) and the acting is like as if the players can't wait to go home. Even the most obsessed fan of Madonna can't be interested in this junk. It is most definitely the worst film, anybody can see. I recommend this title, if they wish to go through an unbearable experience!!
