'Rebel Heart' is fun, just fun. Madonna seems joyous herself, full of energy and vitality - no strain, no pain. (No pain that's obvious, anyway.) The costumes, sets and amazing dancers take second place to the positive vibrations Madonna sends out. If it's acting, then she is a far, far better actress than she has ever been credited. The star seems to have recaptured the effervescence of her early days, when fame was was shiny and new, not yet a burden, and the world she declared she wanted to conquer, was waiting for her.
Madonna is a great showman, and a great artist. Period. Deal with it, bitches. The two words critics love to use about Madonna - always have - are 'desperate' and 'over.' If what I saw last week is desperate and over, please, sir, may I have some more?
