I decided to buy this movie because it seems like more of Madonna in Manhattan or urban New York "extended" i think.I'd never seen this movie before or so I thought. When I started to read the reviews here I realized I'd seen at least part of this movie before on cable once in the 80's, Madonna got some guy arrested for shop lifting "just because she could" a reviewer wrote, I realized I'd seen this movie before or atleast that scene. I remember the scene Madonna is helping herself to some not so free cassette tapes or CDs she's "lifting" she plants a cassette tape on some poor unsuspecting schmuck so he can trip the metal detector while she walks a way Scott free with all those cassette tapes she forgot to pay for. While the guy she duped gets detained by security, that's classic Madonna so cool so suave ( unless your that poor schmuck) thats the only scene I remember from that movie, but I'll bet when I watch this movie it will be like dejuvu ,watch it again for the first time, but I brought this dvd mainly because its seems like desperately seeking Susan 2 in a way,more of madonna being Madonna.Charmed, she cuts you and Laughs while your bleeding thats madonna alright ,but she's far from evil.In fact to me.She seems like a fallen angel from the heaven's.
The brunettish one with the big funky (awesome) eyebrows & a real body a less polished sculpted femme fatale than future incarnations,but one who's rawness & youthful confidence is her charm a reviewer once wrote. How could I not buy this dvd.These are the only 2 movies I have of Madonna,desperately seeking Susan is some what of a master piece & my favorite.It's a master piece of urban art and imagination dreamed up probably overnight or over a cup of steaming cappuccino, born out of a day dream perhaps then slapped on a peice of canvas at a moments notice or the silver screen where it stuck and stuck pretty d... ! good,it stuck in the hearts of many Americans and made a huge impression on them for "good" or for the rest of their lives. Or was it just Madonna that made life a little more interesting & controversial ? The movie didn't make Madonna,Madonna made the movie great. She graced the silver screen and the movie with her magical presence (desperately seeking Susan) and made the movie more than it was,but not more than it could be, perhaps. Who is that girl ? did she just clip her wings and fall from the heavens one day in the 80's ? where does she come from ? ( I suppose I could go on bing and find out) but I love mystery's maybe that's what makes Madonna so "great." & mythical.I suppose arquette isn't the only one "Seeking Susan" or following her. I saw Madonna on a billboard recently & I thought that's not Madonna or at least how I remember her,then I thought what generation x's kids don't know won't hurt them, and a girl has to make a living C. Eastwood once said you either progress or decay in this business. Will the real Madonna please stand up,Reinvented reincarnated mythical timeless. immortal ? who's that girl ? that graced our lives & times with her angelic presence who's that girl ?........
Madonna gets 6 stars,the movie gets 4 ..
