Product Description

Product Description

Grammy® and Golden Globe® winner Madonna stars with Oscar® nominees* Willem Dafoe, Anne Archer and Julianne Moore in this "bold, shocking and titillating" ("Entertainment Tonight Radio") erotic thriller. Rebecca Carlson (Madonna) is a powerful woman. Intelligent, successful and breathtakingly beautiful, she can bring almost any man to his knees. And that's exactly where she wants them. But when a night of sexual abandon ends in the death of a prominent businessman, Rebecca finds herself on trial for murder. Now it's up to her attorney (Dafoe) to proveher innocence...but when he becomes entangled in her web of erotic game-playing, his body of evidence begins to contain as many curves as his client. *Dafoe: Supporting Actor, Shadow of the Vampire (2000); Platoon (1986); Archer: Supporting Actress, Fatal Attraction (1987); Moore: Actress, The End of the Affair (1999); Supporting Actress, Boogie Nights (1997); Supporting Actress, The Hours (2002); Actress, Far From Heaven (2002)

Madonna isn't merely the prime suspect in the scandalous murder of a millionaire with kinky appetites; she's the murder weapon itself in this erotic thriller in the Basic Instinct mode. The art gallery owner by day and icy-blond dominatrix by night is accused of, shall we say, "loving" her victim to death, and Willem Dafoe is the happily married lawyer she lures into the dark thrills of pleasure and pain. The actual mystery is perfunctory at best and the absurd courtroom theatrics a mere formality in a film far more fascinated with sweaty sex, hot wax, and broken glass. Madonna isn't shy about her body and seems to enjoy the games her character plays, but she's no Sharon Stone; there's no danger smoldering behind her seduction. Like her notorious book Sex, this is a handsomely shot work of pure exhibitionism. --Sean Axmaker

Firstly, I didn't think this was a bad film at all.
Its has an interesting storyline (see above), the acting is acceptable (its a shame we have to mention this when talking about Madonna's movies), and the sex scenes are definately raunchy (actually, more explicit than I would have expected - however this was during Madonna's SEX / rebellious period).
The problem is that it came AFTER Basic Instinct which is a far superior film, more stylish, more dramatic and more enjoyable. The script let the film down at times too, giving Madonna some silly one-liners "Have you ever seen animals make love Frank? Its brutal".
Enjoyable and definately worth a viewing.

I sincerely found this movie provocative, sexy, and quite entertaining. Madonna was more than acceptable and convincing in her role as a manipulating, calculating gold digging sultress. I find the problem so many have w/ her acting, is just her mere presence. Right from the first scene shes in, the director blatantly was trying not to show her face to keep the suspense cause you "knew" it was Madonna, but waits until a sudden close up of her face. Once you see its her, here mere presence seems to cause more of a distraction cause its "Madonna". Therefore, once she speaks her 1st line she probably loses credability from most viewers. But I thought the dialogue, plot, sex/ nude scenes were extremely hot, climatic and natural. Some say there was no chemistry between Madonna and Defoe, I totally disagree, they were blended VERY well together, and Madonna clearly "taught" him a thing or two ;). Madonnas high point in the movie was the court scene where she really display some amazing acting chops!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Madonna has shown us that she is a true DIVA in the music field. She then showed us that she is a true DIVA in her acting-in-a-movie field by starring in her 1985 film debut: Desperatley Seeking Susan. Body Of Evidence tells us that Madonna's Diva Hood in acting is etched in stone. She was DELIGHTFUL in Desperatley Seeking Susan. She was TASTEFUL in Shanghai Surprise. She was AWESOMELY HILARIOUS in Who's That Girl. She was WONDERFUL in The Bloodhounds Of Broadway. She was BREATHLESS in Dick Tracy. She was BITCHIN in A League Of Their Own. But none of those roles even compare 2 her role in Body Of Evidence. The movie itself is N outstanding piece of work.
Madonna plays the stunningly beautiful, but seductive and dominating, Rebecca Carlson. Rebecca is discovered 2 B charged with the murder of her much older lover, Andrew Marsh. Andrew Marsh is a 50, 60 year old man with a bad heart condition. On the night of his untimely death, Rebecca had been invited over 2 his house and the 2 have downright porn sex. The next morning, Andrew is found dead.
Willem Dafoe is in the role of Frank DeLaney, Rebecca's lawyer. Frank is sort of insecure and vulnerable and that is what makes Rebecca attracted 2 Frank and then it makes her want him. 4 Frank, from the second he had met Rebecca, he was instantly attracted 2 her. Of course, Rebecca begins 2 seduce Frank. After their first court session which seemed 2 have gone really well 4 Frank and Rebecca, the two N'joy a harmless business dinner. After giving her a ride home, she finishes off the seduction by saying this, "There's nothing wrong in admitting that U want me". He tries 2 kiss her but it doesn't work. She pushes him away and tells him 2 go home. He walks back 2 his car.

This is definitely first class thriller. Body Of Evidence takes U 2 a world where no other movie has taken U B4.
Madonna is in the lead role of Rebecca Carlson, a beautiful woman charged 4 the murder of her much older, but wealthy boyfriend, with a bad heart condition. Willem DaFoe plays Frank DeLaney, the lawyer who must defend Rebecca. But Frank is suddenly drawn 2 Rebecca and after a steamy seduction, Frank becomes another one of Rebecca's dominated puppets.
Other stars include Joe Montegna who plays Garrett, the Lawyer who is up against Rebecca. Anne Archer, who playes Joanne, the wealthy guy's secretary, and Julianne Moore who plays Sharon, Frank's attractive, but naive wife.
Madonna may have been great in films like Desperatey Seeking Susan, Shanghai Surprise, Who's That Girl, The Bloodhounds Of Broadway, Dick Tracy, and A League Of Their Own but Madonna delivers N outstanding, steamy performance in this classic thriller. I urge all of U 2 buy this movie. U will all B deeply surprised.

Wow, they released this on DVD? Who'd have thought. Objectively speaking, "Body of Evidence" HAS to be among the top five worst movies ever made. The only sort of person who could ever tolerate sitting through it is the rabid Madonna fan. I mean, I've seen it and yeah, I'm a fan of sorts, I'll admit it - but I can only take so much. This flick is simply inexplicable as anything other than a bizarre mistake on the part of most everybody involved.*
(*Then again, while Madonna as a rule is not a huge box-office draw, I'm sure anything with her name attached winds up selling big on video and DVD eventually, no matter how awful.)
Poor Madonna. It's not that we don't want her to do well. It's not that we can't see how hard she's trying - it's that we CAN. The girl never had an un-self-conscious moment in front of the camera in her life. By the way, that's exactly why she is so magnetic in her proper medium, music video - that instant rapport is what made her a star. "Evita" worked for her because it's basically a 2-hour highbrow music video. But "Body of Evidence," which is obviously Madonna's attempt at "Basic Instinct," just makes her look foolish. AGAIN. At that point she was already a veteran of looking foolish on the silver screen. And you know, good for her, she does what she wants, she takes risks, but her choices are so consistently, amazingly terrible that it's impossible to take her seriously as an actress.
Who wrote this script? I'm not hitting the back button to see if it says, I don't really care, but I mean, good night! - it's bad. She kills the rich old guy by having-relations-with-him to death. She's like a much leaner and supposedly much more savvy version of Anna-Nicole Smith.
