I love Anthony Lane's film reviews in the New Yorker-- sometimes he is just scathing! Here's his take on Madonna's recent directorial debut:
What vexes me most about “Filth and Wisdom” is the economics. Madonna has been a global star for decades. She has amassed a fortune, much of which presumably remains intact. She can’t have spent all of it on jodhpurs and conical bras. So why, when it came to launching herself as a film director, did she limit her budget to $365.23? Such, at any rate, is my estimate for the funding of “Filth and Wisdom.” If the actors were paid according to their talents, they cannot have cost more than forty bucks.
Yowza-- that's gotta hurt, even if you're wearing protective garb such as jodhpurs and conical bras!
