Madonna fails again at her big screen ambitions

As a director Madonna's understanding of subtlety and nuance is akin to a stiff punch to the gut. She doesn't get it at all. Incomprehensible at times and pretentious in others, there isn't that much reason to watch it. I skipped some of the more arduous scenes that were hard to get through. Doing this made the movie easier to watch.

The immigrant storyline which takes place in London is mildly interesting. The problem is that Madonna doesn't know how to bring her ideas and observations together in a way that makes enough sense. This lack if comprehension for the story she is trying to tell coupled with her inexperience as a director leads to on screen confusion and annoyance.

Don't Particularly Like Madonna...But This Film? Certainly Different, Entertaining & Quite Under-Rated!

.........from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, Colombia...and ORLANDO, FL

Here's something we can ALL add to our own personal laundry list of labels/notions/concepts we ALL harbor about Madonna: She is a helluva lot better director than she is actor! Of course, maybe that's not really saying much, so make that: "Light Years Better Director Than ACTOR!"

Madonna has been constantly re-inventing herself for over 25 years. That's what she does. This is, by far, her most surprising, most interesting and most promising re-invention to date. She is credited as Director, Co-Writer and Executive Producer. Who else but Madonna would come up with a Title like FILTH and WISDOM?

This is her baby. She has a lot invested in WISDOM receiving, at the very least, a modicum of both commercial and critical success. Quite frankly, I think it would be well-deserved! Madonna is both a micro-manager and a perfectionist. It's easy to see both of these traits reflected in the final cut of WISDOM. The overlay of the music tracks with the visuals is truly inspired and borders on pure genius! Perhaps this aspect was just a tad too In-Your-Face!, but knowing Madonna and her excesses, I would say some of them were rather low-key, considering their origin.

Madonna has populated her film with a cast of starkly contrasting, singularly unique, true to life, rather dark and believable characters. Eugene Hutz is nothing short of phenomenal is his intricate and amazing characterization of the dominatrix by day-Ukranian folk/punk fusion band leader by night!

The most shocking aspect of FILTH and WISDOM? Surprisingly, perhaps just the title! In retrospect, maybe a bad choice, considering it might scare off a lot of potential viewers who otherwise would have enjoyed its relatively inoffensive and aesthetically pleasing rendition.

There is no escaping this fact: Considering WISDOM is a first effort, we must give credit where credit is due and say that, all considered, the Material Girl has turned in a rather surprising and oddly entertaining piece of work!

8*....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!

Better than you think

I saw this movie yesterday at the Berlinale.

Going into the theater I thought it might be a dreadful film (after all there were some terrible comments running the net...) I must say though after just a ten minutes the film had gotten to me. It is funny and has quite a pace to it. Getting to know the different characters did not seem to be "set up" as it happens to be in quite a few movies.

Despite the obvious humor the movie contains a lot to think about and even more to remember.

I really would advice anyone to go and watch the movie as it is one of a kind. Just go in expecting nothing and you will receive everything...
