Overview

Madonna's controversial 1991 documentary account of her Blonde Ambition tour comes to DVD with a widescreen 1.85:1 transfer on this disc. Considering it was released in 1997, one can't expect much in the way of extras, and Madonna: Truth or Dare is definitely not a feature-packed DVD. With a digitally mastered soundtrack in Dolby Digital 5.1, interactive menus, production notes, scene access, cast and crew bios, theatrical trailers, and subtitles in English, Spanish, and French, the DVD is adequate at best, though with the cult following behind the film, it's doubtful just having the film on a digital format won't be enough for fans.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Madonna is at her most outrageous in Truth or Dare, a documentary that reveals a lot about the star and her world, almost in spite of herself. The film follows the singer's "Blonde Ambition" tour, and for much of the trip, the singer is in master-manipulator mode. Director Alek Keshishian subjects her to prolonged exposure, however, allowing the gears behind her public persona to begin to show. Her fascinating struggle to present a front at all times makes for some of the movie's most interesting moments, the most infamous being then-boyfriend Warren Beatty's facetious query, "Why say anything if it's not on camera?" In this respect, Truth is something of a sociological treatise on the disease of anonymity. Keshishian's straightforward style allows a number of readings: he may flatter The Material Girl, but he also manages to do something much more complicated and engaging.

Good I liked it but Madonna was a bit naughty swearing and all but I guess that's good cause we see her real side and she is funny. she likes to make others laugh. good movie. I approve.

The movie was just so great it's hard to put in words.It shows the true madonna not like the other stars that pretend for the camera that there life is so perfect and nothings wrong with it but with madonna she real and in your face.So I just suggest you buy it and enjoy.

This DvD is perfect with one little exception. Unlike the Vhs version, it is missing the extra performances..... Madonna singing 'Like a Prayer' and 'Hanky Panky.'
Constance_Montebello More than 1 year ago
Madonna is a vivid spectacle of a life every one of us should envy! She is the manifestation of the sublime!  This movie proves that!
