Movie Preview: Madonna's Filth and Wisdom

Movie Preview: Madonna's Filth and Wisdom

So, Madonna directed an indie movie, Filth and Wisdom ("they are two sides of the same coin"). The trailer is narrated by the main character, a Ukrainian man named A.K. (Eugene Hutz, frontman of gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello), who "finances his dreams of rock glory by moonlighting as a cross-dressing dominatrix." The movie follows A.K. and his two female flatmates: "Holly (Holly Weston), a ballet dancer who works as a stripper and pole dancer at a local club and Juliette (Vicky McClure), a pharmacy assistant who dreams of going to Africa to help starving children."

All I know is that the music is by Gogol Bordello, so that aspect is probably great.

Maybe the characters seem more likable in the actual movie. But then again, I'm not totally sure I'm interested enough to go see the full movie when it comes out Oct. 17. What do you think? You can check out the trailer if you

I would watch Eugene read the newspaper, so yes, I will see it. No, it does not look good. It's kind of ironic that he looks so awkward playing (basically) himself, but was brilliant playing his (mostly) opposite in Everything is Illuminated.

I saw Madonna filming outside the pharmacy that's featured in the trailer - it was round the corner from my old office and as I was heading back to get the tube home after work, there was Madonna in a green tracksuit with a few people hanging around watching. That was a random day in my old job...

Oh by the way, if you like Eugene Hutz, you absolutely must see Everything is Illuminated. He's brilliant in it and it's a great movie (one of my faves!).

I LOVE Gogol Bordello so I'd really only watch this for the one and only Eugene Hutz.

see i LOVE indy movies like this so i could get into it. i think that it's very different than what we've seen lately so that should be reason enough to check it out. granted i think that there are a lot of times when people should stick to what they do best, but i think that this could be ok.

Madonna + film = Mess. I've learned my lesson the hard way. 3 + strikes -- way out!

I'll pass. Madonna is pretty talentless.

So maybe I'll buy the soundtrack, but the weird description of the plot of the movie, and my general feeling of being totally over anything Madonna-related means that I probably won't see it.
