Editorial Reviews

From the director of Bad Lieutenant comes this riveting look at the dark side of Hollywood filmmaking. Vividly raw and shocking, Dangerous Game stars two of today's most passionate and controversial performers: Harvey Keitel and Madonna. Although he's an

Too many bad roles in bad movies have, I believe, led most people to stereotype her as a bad actress, but that's really not true.

In my opinion this is Madonna's finest acting performance.

Okay, I admit it, I'm an unashamed Madonna fan. I watch all of her movies and enjoy most of them. I do have to admit that some performances have been slightly 'raw', but in Dangerous Game, she shines brightly.

This is definitely an arthouse movie. You would need to enjoy indi and arthouse movies to appreciate this movie.

Dangerous Game has the motif of 'movie within a movie'....we see a movie being made and the behind the scenes footage.

In my opinion this is Madonna's finest acting performance. She brings so much to the character to give a mutlilayered performance.

Not just for Madonna fans - for all who enjoy indi/arthouse movies that make you think....

After the critical panning of the majority of Madonna's films it is easy to dismiss this seemingly insignificant little indie as nothing more than another one of her mistakes or attempts to shock. However, unlike the truly awful Body Of Evidence Dangerous Game does feature a strong storyline and great performances both from Madonna and Harvey Keitel.
Madonna looks more stunning than ever as Sarah Jennings the tragic talentless actress who is referred to by Keitel as "The womanwho can't act". The role is probably not unlike Madonna herself in some ways, although she definately is not talentless, as she endures much abuse in the film as was rumoured she experienced in the late 80's while married to Sean Penn. I suspect this is probably so as such an emotionally raw performance could not be achieved with some drawing and delving into personal experience.
Dangerous Game proves without doubt that the Material girl can act and it is just a shame that the rest of the movie does not hold up to her incredible performance. Abel Ferrara direction is not at it's best and the editing is also very shoddy. The film also features lashings of sex, swearing, violence and rape and this is likely to offend many viewers but if you can cope with that then the movie is a must see not just for Madonna fans but also for anyone who enjoys a good unpredictable thriller. Go rent it!!! Now come on you know you want to!

i was forced to rent this movie by a friend because it had madonna. The box made it look ridiculous, and I was very uninterested in watching it. As soon as it got going, I was mesmorized. I don't understand what everyone has against this movie, to each his own i suppose, but it has some of the most incredible acting I've seen in many many many years. Forever will James Russo's "I NEED THESE THINGS!!!" be ringing in my ears.

It has become so commonplace for critics (professional and armchair alike) to trash Madonna's film outings that when she does deliver a solid performance, hardly anyone sees or hears about it. Such is the case with Abel Ferrara's 1993 box office bomb, "Dangerous Game". With a Hollywood backdrop, the film chronicles the agonies and ecstasies (mostly agonies) of a highly volatile and unstable group of people attempting to get a movie completed. As the tensions in the film spill over into the real lives of the actors and director, an atmosphere of escalating insanity develops, turning the movie set into a breeding ground for out-of-control behavior. Although "Dangerous Game" was produced by Madonna's (former) company, Maverick, make no mistake about it, this is an Abel Ferrara film all the way down the line. It is tough, dark, and uncompromising, which is probably one of the reasons why many people seem to hate this film. Ferrara gained earlier fame with the gritty "Bad Lieutenant" and "Ms. 45", so a viewer familiar with those films will already have an idea what to expect from "Dangerous Game".

Harvey Keitel, as always, does a stellar job. Here he plays a New York film director, leaving his family to fly to L.A. and make an extremely disturbing film about infidelity and abuse. Keitel, with his frazzled hair and craggy face, realistically portrays the increasing isolation of his character from his wife and son, eventually sinking into despair and disillusionment. James Russo, as the male lead of the film-within-a-film, excels at playing psychopaths, and here he's walking a fine line as a man descending into a drug and alcohol induced world of paranoid madness. He's a good actor and gives a convincing performance but his constant carrying-on in this film does get wearying.

This is Madonna's best performance and one of the best performances by any screen actress for that matter. The film is very disturbing, yet so brilliant. It is sadly poetic in an exestential anti-transformative sort of Bataille-spiritual way. I love the film and love the DVD. It is a must have for any Madonna fan or Abel fan. And it is definately for any fan of classy, high-end, postmodern, underground narrative cinema. This is Abel's best film. Madonna and Abel are absolutely stunning and brilliant in this classic masterpiece of alternative cinema.

After several failed attempts at acting in starring roles that were all critical/box office duds, Madonna decided to pick herself up by her bra straps and give a real, intense acting performance. True Madonna has shown some acting skill in the past with such roles as trampy free spirit Susan in "Desperately Seeking Susan", frisky baseball player "All The Way" Mae Mordabito in "A League Of Their Own" and the sexy, complicated chauntesse Breathless Mahoney in "Dick Tracy" but all of those roles were supporting and Madonna has proven herself adept at doing her best work when the pressure isn't on her to deliver the goods. Leading roles in SHANGHAI SURPRISE, WHO'S THAT GIRL?, BODY OF EVIDENCE and THE NEXT BEST THING, have all ended in catastrophe damaging Madonna's ever shaky movie career each time. But after the debacle of Body of Evidence, the underappreciated EROTICA album and the mega-selling but shame inducing SEX book, Madonna's career was at an all time nadir and she was basically pronounced dead as a doorknob by all her critics and detractors. With DANGEROUS GAME, Madonna gave her all in an intense, raw, from the gut performance which was definently overlooked by the public. As Sarah Jennings, TV starlet given the lead role in a dark, moody art film about the disintegration of a marriage, Madonna shines in a role that truly displays her talents. As Claire, Madonna also revealed a vulnerable and haunting side to her persona, which stays with any viewer of the movie long after the credits roll. You remember the rumors of domestic abuse that swirled around Madonna's 80's marriage to bad boy actor Sean Penn and you wonder if she was reliving her traumas through Claire.Read more ›
