Critic Reviews for Madonna: Truth or Dare

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (5)

Whether you regard her as a symptom or a cure for a culture still locked in its eternal battle between the puritanical and the prurient, Madonna's at the barricades. In Truth or Dare, she's at her button-pushing best.

Isn't quite a documentary and definitely isn't narrative fiction, but is some kind of of narrative written out of the material of the real world.

She invests the character of "Madonna" with silliness, lightness, depth, nastiness - the complexity of a "real" person, who she may or may not be.

In essence, Truth or Dare is less of a concert film than an elaborately constructed exegesis on pop mythmaking and the construction of identity.

In presenting an "honest," unvarnished portrait of herself, Madonna gives her one great performance in a movie.

Audience Reviews for Madonna: Truth or Dare

It's really strange to watch this film and come out with a decided opinion on who Madonna is as a person, what she stands for, and what she cares about. Throughout the film there is this strange, pretentious narration that flits between scenes that are completely oppositional to what happens onscreen. Read more at

As many others have said, Warren Beatty steals the show with his comments about Madonna "not wanting to live off camera". Love her or hate her, this is still an interesting look inside Madonna's life.

This film was the big thing in 1991. Fascinating and Fun tour with Madonna and her concert series. I learned to love her and hate her from this very same movie. She's a phenomenal and complex character. We saw some humanity presented too! I was awed by the stage performances and costumes which accompanied the music. I chuckled at the likes of the horse-man, the bed-pounding and the cone-bras. The Toronto authorities should be ashamed of themselves for trying to stop such an influential artist from letting her work be witnessed.

Fascinating behind-the-scenes documentary of Madonna. Absorbing stuff, whether you like her or not.
