    First Look: Madonna's 'Filth and Wisdom'

    There's a moment towards the end of Filth and Wisdom, Madonna's directorial debut, when the character Andre, the lead singer of a band called Gogol Bordello -- who, in one of many puzzling choices made in this film, is played by Eugene Hutz, who is really the singer of Gogol Bordello -- looks squarely into the camera and says, "We're all on the same ship.If it sinks, we all go down together." He seems to be talking about himself and his fellow actors, because their performances -- whether flawed or flawless -- are sunk from the start under the burdensome weight of Madonna's plodding hand. Now, don't get me wrong. I like Madonna.
