Movie Info

Celebrated indie filmmaker Eddie Israel (Harvey Keitel) heads to California to shoot his latest movie, Mother of Mirrors, an examination of a marriage in which the wife pressures her husband to abandon their formerly mutual sex-and-drugs lifestyle and seek the same kind of religious conversion she has experienced. Leaving behind his own wife Madlyn (Nancy Ferrara) and his young son, Eddie explains the impetus of his latest project in a series of behind-the-scenes interviews. Meanwhile, Sarah

One of [Ferrara's] most rewardingly challenging works.

Lessons of Darkness uncommonly interminable experience.

This twisted little trainwreck is amazing for the fact that it was ever even made.

More dreadful than dangerous.

Dreary drivel from Madonna's "arty" phase

Had everything going for it, but then never really went anywhere.

Among the movie's triumphs is that Madonna actually wakes up and gives a solid, believable performance.

Audience Reviews for Dangerous Game

A different type of film, it just didn't pull me in like I expected.

That's right! I like this film. Very much in fact. Hot on the heels on Ferrara's finest film, Bad Lieutenant, comes what is probably his most challenging one...and most bizarre. A lot of folks who thought Ferrara was on his way up after BL were put in their place by this uncompromising flick that leaves the viewer scratching their noggin. Still, whether you understand it or not (I don't remember it all too well, it's been years since I've seen it) it's entertaining and has all the elements I love in a Ferrara flick.

There is a good reason for the fact that nobody knows this film. Madonna should be banned from acting forever. I am truly ashamed to admit I actually own the DVD. It was cheap and I didn't know the movie, dammit! ;-)
