Storyline

From the rain of Japan, through threats of arrest for 'public indecency' in Canada, and a birthday tribute to her father in Detroit, this documentary follows Madonna on her 1990 'Blond Ambition' concert tour. Filmed in black and white, with the concert pieces in glittering MTV color, it is an intimate look at the work of the music performer, from a prayer circle with the dancers before each performance to bed games with the dance troupe afterwards.

Alternate Versions

The second UK video release was cut by 57s for a 15 certificate, removing some sex references:
  • (49 mins) When Madonna refers to her old school friend in spotted dress, remove her line "Did she say she finger-fucked me?"
  • (64½ mins) In man's account of woman being raped, remove "Her bum was bleeding."
  • (83 mins) When Madonna talks about being in her father's bed, remove her phrase ". . . after he fucked me .... "
  • (95 mins) Remove Madonna's question to black man sitting at table "Have you ever been fucked up the ass".
  • (96½ mins) After two men break apart from kiss, remove whole episode in which Madonna is asked to show how she "gives head" with a bottle, resuming on woman in profile asking "Madonna, truth or dare?"
A sticker on the cover stated it was a "specially edited version". This was just done to boost sales - all other releases (cinema/initial video/DVD) are uncut with an 18 certificate. See more »

Nothing surprising
13 March 2002 | by drosse67See all my reviews

Nothing surprising is revealed in this documentary. Perhaps ten years ago, when the film came out, it stunned many fans and non-fans. But Madonna has remained in the spotlight ever since, and thanks to magazines, interviews, MTV, VH-1, not to mention her music, video, book and film work since 1991, we've seen most of the stuff in this documentary already. Plus, Madonna shows us only what she wants us to see. There are a few moments when the camera suddenly shuts off, like when she confesses that Sean Penn was the love of her life. She also talks about her huge crush on Antonio Banderas, and when he snubs her, she jokingly admits that she will never work with him (obviously she was kidding because she worked with him in Evita). When she's playful and in good spirits, she's fun to watch. But in the end, this is really a vanity project, instead of the completely "naked" documentary it was supposed to be. That probably suits her diehard fans just fine, but regular viewers are hoping to see more than her "attitude" backstage, long footage of her explicit onstage material, constant vulgarity, and high-maintenance daily rituals.
