I watched Going to Tell You a Secret last night and quite enjoyed it. It was a behind-the-scenes look at Madonna and her interactions with her dance troupe and family during her Re-Invention World Tour.
There was a lot of relevant dialogue about religion, politics, relationships (romantic love versus true love) and family but a few of the things that stuck were:
“Sometimes fun is overrated.”
“Know more, Learn more, Achieve more”
The documentary alternates between black and white and color performances which is cool. There’s footage from auditions, rehearsals, taping, shows and some interactions with Guy Ritchie and their children; and a few celebrity cameos from Micheal Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Iggy pop.
It was just under two hours but it went by quickly. Madonna has matured a lot since the Truth or Dare days. She comes across as caring and fun to be with. I really enjoyed watching this documentary and felt inspired throughout it. It you’re a fan of Madonna or are just a bit curious I think you’ll enjoy this documentary.
