Dangerous Game (also known as Snake Eyes) is a 1993 film directed by Abel Ferrara starring Madonna, Harvey Keitel and James Russo.



The film opened in US theaters on November 19, 1993 and was trashed by critics. It found a few fans, however: Slant magazine's Ed Gonzalez called the film Madonna's only full-length masterpiece (aside from her album Erotica, which was released the year before).

Madonna herself was apparently not happy with the film. She was quoted as saying: "Even though it's a shit movie and I hate it, I am good in it." She also mentioned how the actual script was much better and her part more strongly written, but Ferrara changed a lot of it in the editing room. When asked about this, Ferrara said

It was just another one of our films that never came out. But on that one, the audience didn't really like the film. Madonna killed it. The first impression people get on a movie is the one that never gets out of their mind. So after Madonna got so trashed for doing Body of Evidence, she thought she was going to beat the critics to the punch and badmouth the film. And she actually got good reviews. She never got a good review from the Voice or The New York Times in her life, but she got good reviews for this movie, which she came out and trashed. I'll never forgive her for it.

This was the first production by Madonna's Maverick Picture Company, a division of the newly formed entertainment company Maverick.
