A Madonna film retrospective is coming to Metrograph
Written by

On the spectrum of pop stars who grabbed for Hollywood careers, Madonna sits on the bland-to-awful end. She certainly landed some choice opportunities but never quite came alive when the cameras were rolling. Metrograph, our favorite new art house, begs to differ—we're talking loud, strenuous begging. Beginning Saturday 27, the theater presents five days of Madonna films, seven titles (along with its week-long revival of the tour documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare) that will test your fandom. Ever felt like returning to Dick Tracy or Body of Evidence? Now's your chance. Actually, we take it back: Madonna excels in 1985's Desperately Seeking Susan as the object of downtown desire. That comedy plays the first night; check it out.
