Product Description

Grammy® and Golden Globe® winner Madonna stars with Oscar® nominees* Willem Dafoe, Anne Archer and Julianne Moore in this "bold, shocking and titillating" ("Entertainment Tonight Radio") erotic thriller. Rebecca Carlson (Madonna) is a powerful woman. Intelligent, successful and breathtakingly beautiful, she can bring almost any man to his knees. And that's exactly where she wants them. But when a night of sexual abandon ends in the death of a prominent businessman, Rebecca finds herself on trial for murder. Now it's up to her attorney (Dafoe) to proveher innocence...but when he becomes entangled in her web of erotic game-playing, his body of evidence begins to contain as many curves as his client. *Dafoe: Supporting Actor, Shadow of the Vampire (2000); Platoon (1986); Archer: Supporting Actress, Fatal Attraction (1987); Moore: Actress, The End of the Affair (1999); Supporting Actress, Boogie Nights (1997); Supporting Actress, The Hours (2002); Actress, Far From Heaven (2002)

Madonna isn't merely the prime suspect in the scandalous murder of a millionaire with kinky appetites; she's the murder weapon itself in this erotic thriller in the Basic Instinct mode. The art gallery owner by day and icy-blond dominatrix by night is accused of, shall we say, "loving" her victim to death, and Willem Dafoe is the happily married lawyer she lures into the dark thrills of pleasure and pain. The actual mystery is perfunctory at best and the absurd courtroom theatrics a mere formality in a film far more fascinated with sweaty sex, hot wax, and broken glass. Madonna isn't shy about her body and seems to enjoy the games her character plays, but she's no Sharon Stone; there's no danger smoldering behind her seduction. Like her notorious book Sex, this is a handsomely shot work of pure exhibitionism. --Sean Axmaker

Although, not the most brilliant movie ever made it iscertainly not the worst. Madonna was herald as the reason this moviewas so horrible, but if you notice her performance in no better or worse than any of the other actors. And,as always she bares the entire burden of our (the public's) hang-ups. You know what though? All that aside, it's a fairly decent movie. I mean, it does, at least have a plot, and there is suspense and sex (general movie fare). If you're a fan of the now ethereal girl, this is a gem and milestone from her past.

Ok, so the plot of this film may be laughable - the only person who seems to break the law
is dafoe's character (who illegally has sexual relations with his client, and commits rape),
but that's not the point of watching this movie.
The reason I would recommend this film is simple - watching madonna, the sexiest woman ever,
doing what she does best. She looks incredible, and her performance is excellent. The only
criticisms I would have of 'body of evidence' are that we seem to see dafoe naked more often
than madonna, and the sex scenes have large sections edited out of them.
The film's most (in)famous scene, where madonna seduces dafoe, ties him up with his own belt
then teases and tortures him by pouring hot wax onto his body is, in my opinion, the sexiest ever
commited to celluloid, with great preformances from both actors. Quite frankly, I can't beleive
how lucky willem dafoe is, getting paid to film this scene with madonna.
The 'twist' at the end of the movie is predictable and pretty dull, but I give 'body of evidence'
five out of five for madonna's unbelievable body.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie's plot.

After the surprise success of 1992's controversial erotic thriller Basic Instinct, studios starting snatching up every similar script floating around in an attempt to cash in on that film's success. One of the most infamous attempts at ripping off Basic Instinct was the 1993 Madonna vehicle entitled Body of Evidence. Before the movie's initial theatrical release, there was a considerable buzz surrounding the movie's numerous explicit sex scenes between Madonna and a slumming Willem Dafoe. People were talking about how in-your-face these scenes were. There also were some rumors that some of the sex scenes weren't completely faked.

But the movie ran into huge problems with the MPAA and almost all of the sex got cut out of the R-rated theatrical version. Regardless, the movie was pretty awful regardless and died a quick death at the box office. It also really hurt Madonna's credibility at that time and was viewed as severely damaging to her overall career. When it was released on video, MGM released it in both its R-rated version as well as an unrated cut that restored all of the explicit sex that had to be removed from the R version. (The unrated cut is the version that I'm basing my review on BTW). It's also been rumored that the European cut is still even more explicit than even the unrated American cut but I haven't seen it to compare and sitting through this movie more than once might cause me irreperable brain damage.

The plot involves Rebecca Carlson (Madonna) who has been accused of murdering her much older lover by deliberately having kinky sex with him despite his severe heart condition. Frank Dulaney (Willem Dafoe) is a defense attorney who gets assigned to her case.

There is some nice production design and the actors do what they can with the script, but there just isn't anything original here, nor is it very interesting.

An attorney takes on a difficult client, falls for her and has an affair with her for no discernible reason, the sex scenes are silly and laughable, blah blah.

Move on to something else.

Trash is an elevated term for this junk. It plays like a soft-core episode of "Perry Mason". In full Razzie form Madonna does her worst Catherine Tramell impression. She was more seductive in the "Open Your Heart" video. Julianne Moore had a hotter bod than Madge in her one nude scene. Willem Dafoe seems bored content to do the two-backed beast with the Material Girl. The only person who survives dignity intact is Joe Mantegna. He keeps his clothes on. A must if you absolutely have to see Madonna in the buff.

The story and acting are appalling, but this is worthwhile simply to appreciate Madonna's body. The scene where she is handcuffed and gets it in the exit hole is exceptional. Otherwise this movie is a turkey.

In order for me to review this movie I must compare it to another similar movie. By coincidence I just saw Final Analysis and that film is quite similar in tone with Body of Evidence.

In Final Analysis we have Issac Barr being played by a beautiful woman who used her sister and her beautiful body to seduce a kind and giving man. The woman, Heather Evans, played fantastically by Kim Bassinger, kills her husband and hides the murder weapon. In Body of Evidence, we have a beautiful and sexy vamp who targets older men. She sexes one of them to death by erotic asphyxiation. Andrew Marsh left 8 million dollars to Rebecca Carlson while Heather Evans got 4 million in a life insurance policy that went to her after her husband's brother, the true beneficiary, died of bone cancer. Both women are beautiful and sexy and both women are devious and calculating. Heather Evans had it the worst. She was sexually abused by her father and found herself in an emotionally abusive (And Perhaps Physically Abusive) relationship. The circumstances of her life perhaps excused her behavior to some degree. Rebecca Carlson seemed to be a woman who preyed on older men. This was shown in the movie when three of the men she dated were older than her. One died and one was used and abused by her. The other one got his revenge in the end. Unfortunate as I hate to see a beautiful woman killed by a man. Some people said the women got their comeuppance. I hated seeing Joe Mantegna's character (Who Also Played A DA In The Courtroom Thriller Called Suspect) say: "Do you believe in Karma?" Then he replies to him by saying: "I did win," as the camera pans to Carlson's murdered body. That was wrong. It only showed me how evil DA's can be.
