Madonna returns to stadiums and arenas for her ninth tour, and the highest grossing tour of 2012! EPIX is proud to exclusively broadcast this thrilling, dazzling, cutting edge and controversial concert. In HD.
The hit musical based on the life of Evita Duarte, a B-picture Argentinian actress who eventually became the wife of Argentinian president Juan Perón, and the most beloved and hated woman in Argentina.
A millionaire is found dead of heart failure handcuffed to the bed with a home video tape of him and his lover. When cocaine is found in his system, and his will leaves $8 million to his lover, they arrest her on suspicion of murder. Her lawyer succumbs to her charms, and he begins a torrid and kinky affair with her. As new evidence turns up during trial, he begins to wonder if he's defending a murderer.Written by

Neither Madonna or Willem Dafoe had a body double for any of the sex scenes. See more »
When Frank approaches Rebecca as she is lying on the bed and takes off his shirt, the cuffs of the shirt are suddenly unbuttoned (presumably so it would be quicker for the actor to remove), when they were buttoned previously. See more »
The UK video, claimed on the box to be "the full uncut version" shows slightly more graphic footage of the sex scenes than the version featured on the UK region 2 DVDs, as well as American R-rated DVD versions and unrated DVD versions. This is noticeable in the scene where the police "investigators" watch the video tape playing in Andrew Marsh's bedroom after his untimely death and when Rebecca Carlson and Frank Dulaney get personal as well professional for the first time.

Just what Madonna wanted to be--the latest Sharon Stone knock-off
Trashy sex-melodrama might have been much more fun had it the slightest sense of humor; alas, all the laughs here are unintentional, and the straight-faced actors just end up looking foolish. Willem Dafoe seems on auto-pilot throughout, cast as a defense attorney opposite Madonna, playing a woman who is suspected of killing her wealthy older lover with too much rough-housing in the bedroom. Grubby nonsense with a cliché-ridden script, B-movie characters, and a silly finish. For camp-addicts, a hoot; all others beware. Released to video in R, NC-17, and Unrated versions, none of which managed to improve on the ludicrous screenplay. *1/2 from ****
