However, all of the above means that the production nevertheless works rather well as another source of facts for her followers. There's a lovely quote attributed to Warren Beatty--"She's a nice girl, but you can't take her anywhere"--and plenty of unintentional humour, such as when her former school counsellor, straining to dredge up any early wacky behaviour on Madge's part, recalls, "there was a time when she didn't shave her legs". Like, omigod!
Other "revelations" are that she didn't have any money in the early days, that she worked as a nude model to pay the rent, that she would occasionally shoplift and that she behaved in an affectionately flirtatious way towards female friends. No doubt there are first-year geography students with a similar lifestyle. What we do learn is how fascinating she was, how good she was at everything, how much respect she now commands and how much fun everybody had back then. All in all, then, a very enjoyable item for fans (and non-fans will inevitably find themselves on her side), but not the outragefest it claims to be.
On the DVD: Madonna Exposed has a single bogus "special feature" on this 4:3 DVD: nothing more than a menu which directs you to the contributions made by the individual guests. --Roger Thomas
