"One of the 50 Coolest Websites...they simply tell it like it is" - TIME

Dangerous Game | 1994 | R | - 8.6.10

As a director of a movie within a movie starring Madonna and James Russo, Harvey Keitel is thrown into the question of whether art can mirror reality.

SEX/NUDITY 8 - There are two explicit sex scenes featuring Madonna; she is shown in bed with Keitel and Russo. Keitel is also involved in two other sex scenes with his wife. There is nudity in all of the sex scenes, exposing posteriors and breasts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - The violence is more mental than physical, with Russo sadistically lacerating Madonna's beliefs. Russo cuts his hand, supposedly slits Madonna's throat and the bloody results are shown.

LANGUAGE 10 - Counting the F-words will force the viewer to miss the film. There is also a full range of scatological and anatomical terms.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
