Madonna's Directorial Debut Boasts Filth, Wisdom, Large Mustache

Hutz1

These are the first shots released from Filth & Wisdom, Madonna's directorial debut, which will be premiering in the Panorama sidebar at the Berlin Film Festival which begins on February 7th.

The shots feature Eugene Hutz, the Ukrainian frontman for gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello, and the movie is described as "a low-budget music-based comedy." It also features Richard E Grant and Stephen Graham (Gangs of New York).

No doubt she's hoping her directing will be better received than her acting.

  2. I'm actually looking forward to this. I've always thought she'd be a much better director than actor, and I like some of her film performances.

    Getting into the Berlin film festival is a big deal, so congrats to her.

  3. Oh, Andy, that last comment of yours was too easy! :0) I'm hoping it will be interesting. Would be great to see her become a director, though with her new deal she'll be pretty busy recording and touring.

  4. Eugene Hutz is a better actor than Madonna. He's great in Everything is Illuminated.
