Movie Reviews

Do not be misled
this reviewer | USA | 01/05/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Do not be misled: The 1993 movie, "Dangerous Game," starring Harvey Keitel and Madonna, is NOT the same movie as the 1991 film of the same title. As of January 2005, the 1993 Keitel/Madonna film has NOT been released on Region 1 DVD (for North America). Unfortunately, Amazon has confused the two, and features reviews of the 1993 film (from customers in the UK and France, where it apparently HAS been released) under the product description for the 1993 film.

The 1991 film, "Dangerous Game," was directed by Stephen Hopkins, and stars Steven Grives and Marcus Graham. It's basically about a group of teens trapped overnight in a department store with a killer.

The 1993 film, "Dangerous Game," was directed by Abel Ferrara, and stars Harvey Keitel and Madonna. This one's basically about a filmmaker's adultery while shooting a movie.

(Since this review is strictly for the sake of clarification, I'm giving it a "neutral" 3.)"
A dark tale of creation
Aaken | Paris, France | 04/22/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Abel Ferrara is back with this nauseating and nihilistic tales about creation and redemption (or redemption in creation).
A director (Harvey Keitel) who's unable to manage his private life, tries to find reality and truth in his new project, a film about a woman, Claire, who finds her faith, when she's been leading a rather promiscuious, wild life with her husband.
A film in a film. His two leading actors, Madonna and James Russo are to give him this truth he cannot find alone. And as the film progresses, the two actors lose touch with their own reality and can't make the difference between the character they're playing and themselves.
Keitel is perfect as Ferrara's alter ego. It's also interesting to note that Ferrara used Madonna for what, generally, people took her for: not a really good actress. But the transformation she goes through in the film while playing an actress who becomes a good actress playing a woman finding God, is very impressive. (She was the surprising revelation for European critics.)
This mirror game leaves the viewer rather confused, but Ferrara's statement about creation, illusion and images is more than interesting.
Unfortunately, the film is much too dark and hopeless. But if you manage to stand this nihilistic experience, you'll discover quite a good film."
