Body of Evidence

Year: 1993
Director: Uli Edel
Cast: Madonna, Willem Dafoe, Joe Mantegna, Julianne Moore, Anne Archer
At the height of her horniest period, where she was as obsessed with sex as a 17 year old boy, everything Madonna did expressed her seemingly insatiable appetite to talk about, display or comment on everything sexual, and from most of her music at the time to her Sex picture book to this film, the message was the same. Summed up by two little lines (Willem Dafoe: We're not animals. Madonna: Yes we are), it was part of the Grand Unified Theory of Madonna.

She plays a femme fatale of some sort accused of a murder, the lawyer (Dafoe) assigned to her falls for her 'charms', and in between sex scenes, they get to the bottom of a sub par police thriller.

Not very interesting, not very sexy, and full of the one thing everyone else in the world except for Madonna is only too aware of; her shocking attempt at 'acting'.
