|Zowaar, Madonna’s film is leuk
…Regisseren gaat Madonna beter af dan acteren, blijkt tijdens de Berlinale.
…Maar zie: Filth and Wisdom is zo slecht nog niet. Na afloop klinkt er zelfs applaus. Experimenteel of kunstzinnig is de film niet; fris en grappig wel. Het leven is een paradox vertelt de film: zonder filth (viezigheid) geen wisdom (wijsheid).
|Well, it had to happen. Madonna has been a terrible actor in many, many films and now – fiercely aspirational as ever – she has graduated to being a terrible director. She has made a movie so incredibly bad that Berlin festivalgoers were staggering around yesterday in a state of clinical shock, deathly pale and mewing like maltreated kittens. She is also the producer and co-author of the script. If she’d done the location catering as well, they’d have had a Jonestown situation on their hands.|
