Storyline

From the rain of Japan, through threats of arrest for 'public indecency' in Canada, and a birthday tribute to her father in Detroit, this documentary follows Madonna on her 1990 'Blond Ambition' concert tour. Filmed in black and white, with the concert pieces in glittering MTV color, it is an intimate look at the work of the music performer, from a prayer circle with the dancers before each performance to bed games with the dance troupe afterwards.

Pop Culture Thoughts
1 December 2018 | by popculturethoughtsSee all my reviews

Madonna has been a pop culture phenomenon for so long that it's often easy to take her for granted, but revisiting this revolutionary behind-the-scenes documentary, following the Queen of Pop on her record-breaking 1990 Blond Ambition Tour, is a reminder of how ahead of her time she's always been. The movie itself is compelling, edited with masterful finesse and filled with memorable moments, but really this is all about Madonna, and she's completely in her element here. It's worth a rewatch for those who haven't seen it in a while, and has plenty to offer non-Madonna fans as well.
