Body of Evidence (1993) Madonna, William Defoe
When an elderly millionaire is found dead with cocaine in his system, his will leaves $8 million to Rebecca Carlson (Madonna), who was having an affair with him. District attorney Robert Garrett (Joe Mantegna) decides to prosecute Rebecca, arguing that she deliberately engaged in wild sex with the old man to overexcite him and lead to his premature death. Defense attorney Frank Dulaney (Willem Dafoe) defends Rebecca in court while getting sucked into a dangerous affair with her.
Starring: Madonna, William Defoe, Frank Langella, Joe Mantegna
Viewer Review: "I'm not at all ashamed to admit that I still get kicks out watching this film and getting completely entangled in the story. It's thought provoking. Can someone literally be, umm, sexed to death? Madonna's acting is pretty good, and I suspect the "woodenness" of her performance was largely what the director wanted. Her character's passion was limited to the bedroom (and elevator, and stairs, and parking garage, etc.) and never extended to her daily life. And, by the way, I had forgotten how pretty she could be back then. Anne Archer looked awfully good as well, even while being weepy and not completely hinged. The rest of the cast put in good work, with a special commendation for Julianne Moore. Frank Langella was suitably creepy, and Joe Mantegna suitably industrious. I can't lie-- I love it! I really do! Campy and fun!"
